A FOUR hour litter pick in Chester along one of the banks of the River Dee between Grosvenor Bridge and Edgar’s Field Park resulted in 30 bags of litter.
Other objects collected included metal fencing, road signs, a bicycle, a suitcase, a car wheel and a tyre.
The event was organised by Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Streetscene in partnership with Volunteer Centre Chester.
Rupert Adams, Regulatory Services Manager who is project managing work around the River Dee in Chester said: “The litter pick was extremely successful and the team which carried out the work involved a Streetscene Officer and three volunteers and a staff member from Chester Aid to the Homeless.
“It was a thorough and very successful litter pick and I would like to congratulate everyone who took part.”
Clare Harrison from Volunteer Centre Chester said: “These opportunities are a great way in which to involve volunteers from organisations such as Chester Aid to the Homeless who may not otherwise engage in volunteering due to their housing situation; all of the volunteers worked hard and really enjoyed the event.
“This is also further evidence of how successful working partnerships between the voluntary sector and Cheshire West and Chester Council can be.”
