At the Acocks Green Ward Committee Meeting last week the Environmental Health Officer for our area – Kate Careford suggested a litter pick on the Yardley Road, following the on-going concerns about the untidiness of the area. It was arranged for Monday 3rd March, and even though it was raining, a hardy bunch of locals and Kate made a great effort to clean up our neighbourhood.
Thanks to those helpers and to Kate for her initiative. With the council’s financial problems, perhaps organised litter-picks are one way of fighting the tide of rubbish. Also we can encourage the disposal of rubbish responsibly in the first place and try to pick up litter outside our own homes. We can all play a part, and have a positive impact on our area.
