Let's obliterate litter in Gedling
As part of national Community Clear up day more than twenty Friends of Gedling Country Park Trustees and volunteers took to the hills of the park to collect litter ahead of it's official opening on Saturday 28 March 2015.
Over 45 bags of litter have now been collected and removed from around the paths, ditches and lagoons in the park. Along with the usual wrappers, cans, and bottles, the more unusual finds also included a pink tutu, a dustpan and brush and a life ring.
Trustees were joined on the day by a great group of local volunteers, including our youngest volunteers Sam, Jack, Jamie and Finley.
Gedling Borough Council has finished installing waste bins throughout the park. These will take both general waste and dog waste and we would encourage all park users to use them.
