Calling all green-fingered and handy volunteers!
Congleton In Bloom, supported by Plastic Free Congleton and Friends of Congleton Park, are hosting their first town tidy of 2020 on Saturday 7th March.
Meeting in Congleton Park (10am-12noon) there will be a variety of activities to join in with – and volunteers can do as little or as much as they want during this time.
Some of the activities include: cleaning bins, benches, lighting columns, railings, signs and fountains; removing debris from around the benches and bins; installing ‘no dog fouling’ signs and posters in appropriate and visible places; litter picking; and weeding.
Those joining in are advised to wear clothing appropriate for the weather conditions, and sensible footwear.
Everything else (hi-vis vests, gloves litter pickers, sacks and all equipment) will be provided.
The Congleton In Bloom team is trying to get as many members of the public to help clean up as possible.
Congleton tidy champion Glen Williams commented: “The Congleton In Bloom team look forward to welcoming new and existing volunteers and working with both Friends of Congleton Park and the Plastic Free Congleton group.
“We have decided that Congleton Park is a great open space with opportunity for volunteers to work in the park, but it also gives a chance to work further afield outside of the park, weeding and litter picking the entrances in.
“Congleton In Bloom encourages community involvement and this session is a great way to help clean-up our town and meet new people at the same time!”
