Getting to work picking up rubbish in The Parkway area.

Volunteers join in big clean up

Volunteers have been helping with slightly delayed Great British Spring Clean events to help tidy Spalding.

Independent councillors have organised the tidy ups with the final one due to take place at Fulney Skate Park this Saturday (meet at 10am).
A number of volunteers have been helping out, with 13 at the first event on Monkshouse Lane on Wednesday which split up into two groups of six and maintained social distancing.
On Saturday, 16 volunteers went along to litter pick on Park Road, Park Avenue and roads off and Steppingstone Walk and they collected 16 bags of rubbish.
On Sunday, 13 volunteers targeted St. John’s Road, Green Lane, Winsover Road, and St Thomas’s Road and collected 15 bags of rubbish.
Then on Monday evening it was the turn of The Parkways, Rembrandt Way, Aalsmere Rose and roads off, when 13 volunteers picked up nine bags of rubbish.
Though not involved in this year’s event, South Holland District Council picked up the bags from the volunteers for disposal.
Coun Angela Newton said: “Two ladies, Pim Clarke and Sue Smith, went back to the bridge on Sunday morning with dustpans and brushes and spent two hours’ hard slog finishing off.
“Very many thanks to all the volunteers.”
