Annual Village Litter Pick

Annual Village litter pick with help from UPS®

Sunday 14th April

The annual village litter pick attracted a record number of volunteers this year, 30 people from the village and UPS® turned up on a cold morning to help clean up our beautiful village. It is a real pity that many thoughtless people seem to think they can ditch their litter anywhere, they have no pride in their country; however the sterling folk of Diseworth are up to the challenge.

The group of intrepid volunteers armed with bags, gloves and picking sticks they set off. Mick Steven ran around the village with his truck to pick up the bags. This was just as well for a massive amount was collected. We were truly amazed at the quantity and what was collected!!! Tea and coffee were served as each group returned and the conversation was about the mess around our village.

This was our final pile; it included old wheels, cans of cooking oil and all manner of rubbish. It is a disgrace that people feel they have the right to do this, however it shows the great community spirit in our village that once again we have risen to the challenge.

Thank you to all who turned out to support us.
