Our first litter pick on Friday 22nd March, organised by Marlborough Town Council, as part of the Great British Spring Clean initiative, was hugely successful. Local residents, representatives from Rick Stein, the newly formed Youth Council, the local Police, Marlborough in Bloom and the Town Council all turned up. Sporting hi-vis jackets and with litter pickers at the ready the willing volunteers tackled the High Street, Priory Gardens, Cooper’s Meadow, George Lane Car Park and other problem areas, meeting up with volunteers from Action For the River Kennet (ARK) who were doing a river clean up too. A cup of tea and slice of cake back at the Town Hall rounded off a very enjoyable and satisfying evening. Thank you to everyone for taking part.
The second litter pick took place on 27th March. Please have a look on the Marlborough Town Council website, Facebook or Twitter pages for details of the next litter picking events on 30th March and 7th April.
There will be more Marlborough in Bloom volunteer events soon, so dust off your gardening gloves and get ready to join in to make Marlborough the best it can be.
