Yesterday, volunteers in a community group supported by their local Labour councillor’s in Rawmarsh celebrated collecting 1,000 bags on litter picks. Rawmarsh & Parkgate Friends of Green Spaces have carried out voluntary litter picks in the local community on a weekly basis and have been supported by Labour’s local councillors in Rawmarsh Ward, Councillors Dave Sheppard and Bob Bird.
The group have recently reached 1,000 bags of rubbish collected and marked the occasion with a special litter pick on Friday 24 November 2017.
The community group were joined yesterday by Rotherham’s Deputy Mayor Councillor Alan Buckley to celebrate their achievement and the hard work done by the volunteers who meet on a weekly basis to carry out their litter picks across the local community. Each week, the group will meet in a different location and work to collect rubbish, tidy the area and improve the local environment across Rawmarsh ward. They reached 1,000 bags of rubbish on a recent litter pick on Warren Vale where 100 bags of litter were collected after they also cleared the pavement of leafs in the area as well.
