There was plenty to collect: apart from all the usual drinks cans, bottles and food wrappers, the volunteers found hubcaps, abandoned board games and a complete box of dried pasta.
After the clear-up the group met up – suitably socially distanced – at the Horse and Groom to compare notes over well-deserved coffees and cake, kindly provided by the pub’s management.
A message from the Editor, Gary Shipton:
In order for us to continue to provide high quality and trusted local news, I am asking you to please purchase a copy of our newspapers.
With the coronavirus lockdown having a major impact on many of our local valued advertisers - and consequently the advertising that we receive - we are more reliant than ever on you helping us to provide you with news and information by buying a copy of our newspapers.
Our journalists are highly trained and our content is independently regulated by IPSO to some of the most rigorous standards in the world. But being your eyes and ears comes at a price. So we need your support more than ever to buy our newspapers during this crisis.
Stay safe, and best wishes.
