Action4Acomb wishes to thank the volunteers who turned out on Saturday 5 June to pick up litter around the village.
This community event has taken place annually over several years with the usual cans, sweet wrappers, cigarette ends and bottles, as well as other general unpleasantness being cleared.
This year just 11 bags of litter were collected which we hope is a sign that there is generally less litter than in previous years. However, because of Covid-19 the litter-pick was held a couple of months later than normal, and it may be that the extensive undergrowth is concealing most of what is normally found!
Again, our thanks to all of you who gave up your time and energy to help improve the environment around Acomb.
