Whatta difference a week makes Witter

Dearest Lovers of all things Clean ‘n’ Beeootiful

This time last week, mini beast from the east’s snowdrifts were all. Today, ’tis beautiful spring sunshine. Aaaah. Doesn’t it make the sap rise, filling you with desire to clear litter and plant things??

Before listing this week’s activities : heartfelt thanks to everyone who joined the Great Spring Clean. Civic Pride groups across the valley participated with vim and enthusiasm. Our mob were responsible for 60 bags-ful on Saturday (followed by a free nosh at McD’s!) and supported the Hassy crew collecting another 30 on Sunday. Total from all groups exceeds 130 filled litterbags (that’s over 2/3 of a TONNE!!) of litter which’d otherwise still be desecrating our community. Job done! (for now ….)

Where it’s at this week :
Weds 28th 9.30am Weir Pride at the Doals Centre. Did u hear ’em on Radio Lancs this morning?? The Knit ‘n’ Natter Nutters (see last week’s Weir Pride stuff if that’s incomprehensible …..)
Weds 28th 10am Bacup Pride’s midweek work crew meet at the lockup behind the market
Thurs 29th Civic Pride Rossendale meet 10am on the outbound-from-R’stall layby of the bypass. We’ll complete last week’s transformation there.
Thurs 29th Weir Pride monthly meet at Doals centre : details on their F’b page
Fri 30th 8pm til – um – late : conviviality at Buffer Stops, friendly welcome guaranteed to ALL Priders
Sunday 1st April 10am meet at the fire station roundabout (aka the gyratory) opposite R’stall library. We’re having another bash at that area after Lancs County Council utterly wrecked it a couple of years ago. We’ve done all the April Fools jokes for 1st April but you can invent a new one….. Possibly go to Fitzpatrick’s after for free coffees??
Monday 2nd April meet 9.30am on Trickett’s Memorial Ground for Part 15 of Civic Pride’s major renovation (Liz – will u be there??)

Essential Info
E.I (1) Sunday 8th Rossendale Players’ superb production at the Millennium Theatre on Burnley Rd E, Waterfoot. We’ve been allocated 30 tickets to sell and retain the proceeds for our funds. It’s a top-notch local night out. Tickets from Our Annie : email her on 47annelotusdixon@gmail.com  Please support this and bring some mates with you. We’re allowed to run a raffle as well during the interval but only have 3 prizes thus far – contact Anne with an offer of a donated prize. Thanx!
E.I (2) Sue Shuttleworth – what does she do on her birthday morning last Sunday? Breakfast in bed? Luxuriating in glam hotel? Nah, bless ‘er, out with the litter-picking troops getting mucky. What a treasure!
E.I (3) We have leaflets to distribute asking locals to support Civic Pride’s bid for Tesco cash : £4K on offer if we win. See previous Witters for details but can u help distribute leaflets? Contact us via info@civic-pride.org.uk

Thank you for your patience at having slogged your way through another week’s ol’ Rhubarb!
