The friends of Thringstone Brook Clearance and litter pick workparty.

A great morning for fresh air and community work
With all of the bad weather over Christmas there has been inevitably a buildup of litter around Thringstone. The Council groundsworkers do a great job but they have finite resources and so I, along with my colleagues Ray Woodward and Dave Everitt joined up with other members of The Friends of Thringstone to do a community litter pick. After two hours of hard work (and friendly banter) between us we had collected 15 large sacks of rubbish, along with old tyres and car batteries. It's gone some way to make the village look shiny as spring approaches and gave all of us a decent workout too.
