Local Conservatives Help Out with Church Gresley Litter Pick

Last weekend, MP for South Derbyshire, Heather Wheeler, together with Councillors David Muller, Julie Patten and Stuart Swann lent a hand as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Litter Pick campaign in Castleton Park, Church Gresley.

There was wide ranging community support for the event including from: the Castleton Park Community Group, McDonald’s employees from Ashby, Coalville and Swadlincote, Coalville Town Football Club Under 13s and local residents.

Over the course of a morning, 54 bags of rubbish were collected with a few bizarre items uncovered such as a car wheel, shopping basket and a traffic cone.

The litter pick was organised by Lisa Brooks of the Castleton Park Community Group who must receive huge credit for making the event such a success.
