Litter Removed in Perimeter Litter Pick

On Sunday 14th April, Norton and Gaulby Young Farmers Club performed a litter pick of the area and villages around Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground. Following on from last year’s litter pick, litter had been accumulated once again in the same areas. Norton and Gaulby YFC came forward once again to offer support to the site and clear the area of litter to benefit the community.

Unlike last year however, the volunteers did not have to brave snow and freezing temperatures, brought courtesy of ‘The Beast from the East. The club members who took part cleared a vast area surrounding the 670 acre site on approaches to local villages. The day itself was a rewarding one for the members who took part, even if some of the litter-picked was not quite so pleasant! Many cups, bottles and fast food wrappers were cleared, alongside a few more questionable items! With over 25 bags of rubbish collected the positive effect of the teams hard work was immediately gratifying.

C Walton have expressed their thanks to the Norton and Gaulby YFC team once again for their hard work and are pleased to see a reduction in the amount of litter collected this year in comparison to 2018 – a positive result for everyone.
