Parkwood Springs litter pick

Litter Pick

The winds and storms of winter toss rubbish about and leave our open spaces unattractive.

On a sunny Saturday morning, 10th March, Friends of Parkwood Springs joined the Rangers to clear litter in Little Pear Tree Field – a lovely place for nature study and country walks.

The litter pick cleared sacks of rubbish – but everyone had a great time in the fresh air. One parent said,

“At home my three sons would be fighting – here they work together.”

They also pruned trees and learned about woodland management.

Join us next time – but better still, please take your litter home so we don’t have to clean it up!
