Big Help Out -Community Litter Pick 8th May

A Big thank you for all those who help over the years to keep Saxtead Parish clear of litter. 
A special Thank you to Mr and Mrs Bone, volunteers , for their help in picking up litter and recycle litter in the Little Green in Saxtead Parish, and for all those who helped to clear the Layby in Saxtead Green of as much of the rubbish that could be collected. 
See the photos of end of pick with rubbish collected. 
A Special Thank you to East Suffolk Council for lending equipment for litter pick and for collecting everything found by volunteers. 
We feel this should be a more regular event and hope in the summer when ponds are drier and greens have been cut, we can clear plastic and litter from the greens and verges round Saxtead. 
We will advertise the next litter pick and hope more volunteers will join us to make our parish more environmentally friendly for all that live in the Parish of Saxtead and for the birds and wildlife that share this home with us. 
Please everyone if you see some rubbish "Pick it up and put in bins;" on our dog walks or country walks let us all do our bit by keeping Saxtead free of litter!
Check the Saxtead Parish Council for the date for a day of volunteering to keep Saxtead Green!!
