PUBLISHED: 09:29 04 February 2019
Frustrated by the amount of litter scattered around, a community-minded group of volunteers in Welwyn Garden City decided to do something about it.
More than 20 people, including two young children, spent almost two hours on a freezing Sunday morning doing a litter pick at Moneyhole Lane Park.
Organised by Lloyd Harrison and Carol Hopkins from the Clean Up WGC group, the community litter pick used equipment supplied by Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council through its Adopt A Road Scheme.
The volunteers, whose aged ranged from six to older than 60, filled bag upon bag clearing litter from all areas of the park.
Items found included part of a bed, part of an old metal goal post, planks of wood, plumbing parts, plastic bottles, metal drinks cans, sweet wrappers and crisp packets.
Members of Lindsey Peters’ running club supported the event after their early morning runs.
