Day 27 of my #GBSpringClean marked the first outing of the Charlestown Clean Up group who are going to meet once a month to tackle litter in our parish. We were supported by Clean Cornwall who supplied all the litter picking kit and organised to collect the bags of rubbish we collected. A big thank you to them for their support.
2Parish Councillors joined us today which was very heartening. We split into 2 groups and one concentrated on the village above the harbour going out to St Paul’s church, the other did the lower harbour and coast path to Carlyon Bay and round to the church.
We found the coast path up from the village littered with full poo bags and 7 piles of dog poo red with on the path 😤😮😱 An area half way up the hill was covered with glass and plastic bottles as if left from a party and full bags had to be carried back down to the quay. Litter lined the hedgerows along Beach Road and somebody was decorating the bushes with dog poo bags. Yukkk!!!’
The jewel in the crown today was the area of woodland alongside St Paul’s church hall. It was filthy at the roadside end and we just gave up counting the poo bags as there were sooooooo many!
Passers by kept thanking us and asking ‘Who does this?’
Please let me know if you know 👻👹🤖🧜♀️🧚♂️????
Thanks to everyone who helped Keep Britain Tidy
