TOPCAT clean up

Saturday saw 25 people in high-visibility jackets, with grabbers and pink bags, eyes down, scouring the lanes and verges of Osgodby Parish, seeking out litter.

And successful morning it certainly was, producing a fine haul of tyres, cans, paper, wood, plastic,the remnants of a mini motor bike, and some other unmentionables.

After an hour and a half of ‘nose-to-the-ground’ litter-hunting everybody retired to the Village Hall for bacon butties and hot drinks.

“Since we started our clean-up campaign in 2011 we have now collected over 150 bags of litter, not to mention tyres, oil drums, a bedside cupboard, computer and keyboard, and much more,” said Mike Ormion, Chair of the Osgodby Parish Community Action Team.

“Our thanks go to the supporters of TOPCAT and a plea goes to all those that litter our Parish - PLEASE take your litter home.”
