Another Successful Litter Pick

Greening Chinnor – Community Litter Pick

On Sunday 6th October a dedicated group of 17 Chinnor Community volunteers carried out the 4th litter clearance on some of our most popular village footpaths and byways. We were extremely fortunate with the weather as we were being shown the last glimmers of summer. We were joined by villagers from many sections of the community who split up into groups and gave up a couple of hours litter picking.
Our thanks to the Chinnor Parish Office for sorting out the litter picking equipment.

If you were able to join us on the 6th – our grateful thanks. Many of you were old friends but we were delighted to be joined by several new helpers. The good news is that the volume collected was considerably less than previous outings. This, hopefully, shows the message of not spoiling our lovely environment is getting across  Can we please appeal to dog walkers who have responsibly bagged up dog litter to complete the task and place it in the receptacles provided and not hang it from trees or leave on the path. There really is  no such thing as a dog poo equivalent of the tooth fairy.

Again our thanks. Watch this space for  details of the next event.
