Volunteers from the Wilmslow Clean team have collected 1030 bags of rubbish since they were set up 20 months ago to help keep the town clean.
Each month they complete two litter picks focussing on particular areas of the town, these take place on the first Wednesday of each month and the following Saturday.
Most recently, eight volunteers met at the Honey Bee on Wednesday 5th August and covered a large area including Altrincham Road, between the airport tunnels and the junction with Mobberley Road, and the whole of Morley Green Road between Altrincham Road and Mobberley Road.
They also cleaned up the old road beyond the Britannia Airport Inn where there is an ongoing problem of fly tipping and dozens of nitrous oxide cylinders were found. Sixteen bags of litter were collected altogether on the Wednesday.
Seven volunteers then met at the Parish Hall on Saturday 8th August, with one of the volunteers having tackled Carnival Fields and Altrincham Road on her way to the Parish Hall.
They spread themselves out in various directions to cover the area near the King William pub, Manchester Road, the pathways by the Bollin and along the railway line. Eight bags were collected altogether.
Two other volunteers went over to Prestbury Road which they reported was remarkably clean compared to normal, so they went further afield down Hough Lane and Adlington Road where four bags and two hub caps were picked up.
Wilmslow Clean Team are always on the lookout for new volunteers and they provide all the equipment, insurance and training.
