A cleaner Kent
Yesterday I turned up to support an excellent joint initiative being run by Tonbridge & Malling Council, Medway Council, Maidstone Council and Friends of Taddington Valley to clean up litter in around Walderslade. It was great to see members of the public, who had been leafleted about the event, turn up to help alongside council officials, the local PCSO and others. They provided all the heavy duty gloves, the high visability jackets, and litter pickers and all I needed to do was put on my wellies and start filling my black sack. I helped Bev clear up around Tunbury Primary School and together we cut back all the brambles along the Walking Bus route and filled several bags with crisp packets and sweet wrappers. A couple of hours later with a cup of tea and a jaffa cake in hand we stood back exhausted but able to admire our handiwork - it looked fabulous and hopefully others will notice the difference.
