Whitchurch Village Community Clear Up Saturday 7th April 2018

Twelve Volunteers turned out on a damp and soggy Saturday morning to take part in the Annual Village Clean-up, which runs alongside Keep Britain Tidy events.

Around 20 bags of rubbish were collected from pavements, footpaths and open spaces around Whitchurch Village to help make the area look clean and tidy.

Refreshments were then provided in Whitchurch Community Centre, with homemade cakes donated by a local resident, which were much appreciated by the volunteers after all their hard work.

A huge thank you to all those who took part in the event, organised by Whitchurch Village Council, especially the three pupils from Whitchurch Primary School.
