A spontaneous litter pick today resulted in the collection of exactly 300 cans, glass and plastic bottles. This was just around the entrance of the unmade footpath that joins Rookery Lane with Watery Lane.
The footpath has been overgrown for some time, but as part of the wider Keresley Jubilee Wood rejuvenation project, the plan is to bring it back into use to improve connectivity and reduce antisocial behaviour.
There is still a lot more to do, but the progress today made a big difference to the appearance of the area.
Check out our upcoming Keresley Jubilee Wood Action Day and Monthly Litter Pick Events if you’d like to get involved!
