Posts tagged “Litter Picking”

Lavendon village entered the above competition again this year.  
Last year we entered the competition after several years of absence and scored 83 out of 100. The Parish Council took on board the constructive comments by the judges last year and addressed the areas in the village that needed improvement.  
This year we scored 92 out of 100 with three out of nine categories scoring maximum marks. 
This is an amazing achievement for the village so thank you to you all that make our village a clean and desirable place to live. We have been awarded a Certificate of Merit by the organisers of the competition. 
The winner in our category was Hedgerley with 98 and Chearsley and Cuddington tied on 97. This year was a high scoring year.  
Can we do better next year? The Parish Council are keen to try. 
One of our councillors, Martino Ginepro, has put forward a petition to the UK Government and the Environment Secretary to tackle the issue of littering nationwide. In our own small way we are trying to keep on top of the littering and dog fouling issues that we have around the village but it would be great if we could get behind this petition and help towards solving this ever growing problem.

We plan to start Litter Picking in the village again on 6 April and can start with a flourish by being part of the Great British Spring Clean. Please meet outside the Pavilion at 10.00 am.

We will be running monthly litter picking mornings around the village on the last Saturday of each month. Equipment is provided and this will give you a chance to get more involved in your village and keep the place looking good.
