Our latest Litter Pick took place on the 24th March 2018 from 10am to 12 noon. There was a terrific turn out with over 50 volunteers helping.

Our pictures are as follows:

  1. Giles Lock with the litter collected around Kings Pond and the Station.
  2. Some volunteers receiving their instructions!
  3. The Fletchers ready for action ( a real family effort )
  4. Bob Booker and Charlotte Wigzell with some of the litter.

Congratulations to Karen Booker and Charlotte Wigzell for running the event so efficiently on the day. Thanks also to Barbara Burfoot who dealt with the administration.

EHDC waste management contractors supplied the equipment and Alton Town Council the skips for the rubbish. 53 large black plastic bags were filled. There was an incredible amount of cigarette butts, bottles and cans. Not so many plastic bags this year. Maybe the extra cost for plastic bags is making a difference.

We are considering doing an extra Pick in September – if you think this is a good idea then tell us! Email thealtonsociety@gmail.com
