Community cleans up the streets of Welland

CRISP packets, bottles, two mobile phones and a traffic cone were plucked from the streets of Welland as part of a community litterpick.

Staff from Malvern Hills District Council were joined by Coun Mick Davies and residents as they spent Wednesday afternoon clearing away rubbish littering the village streets.

Altogether 16 bags of rubbish were filled.

Coun Davies said: “Welland is now gleaming thanks to the dozen volunteers who turned out on a winter afternoon.

“After the mince pies and hot drinks we all agreed to make this a regular event”.

The district council has litter picking equipment available to loan to schools and community groups that wish to help keep their area clean and tidy.

Littering is illegal and if caught can result in a £75 fixed penalty notice.

Residents can also report an area they think is in urgent need of cleaning and litter picking by visiting www.malvernhills.gov.uk/report-it and using the online form.
