I’m happy to report that the 14th A351 litter pick is now complete between Swanage -Stoborough roundabout; and all bags retrieved.
It’s amazing how quickly the tossers mess the place up again. Sometimes within minutes!!!!! Maybe they are joshing with us?🤣
Some interesting finds. 7 magnetic ‘L’ plates (please take them off, or they fly off at speeds of over 40mph(???)), a whole bicycle chain (did the cyclist not know it had dropped off?), usual bottles of piss, event signs (organisers please retrieve these post-event 👍) and a woman’s purse/15cards/cash etc etc; the usual ‘Monster’ cans and now CARLSBERG cans which is the new Woodyhyde-Afflington issue! The list goes on……
The next Dawn Patrol is due in December which will complete 4 years of keeping this main A351 Jurassic Coast access litter-free.
Even more important, we will have 4 years of consistent litter data too!
Massive thanks to new recruit Fergus Holland RN who joined me on Mon & Tue (5th & 6th August), and Simon Goldsack who was out today (8th August). Ben Tolley- joining the next session?? There are vacancies for safety aware folk who can get up at stupid O’clock – apply within!!
