Just a cou­ple of hours would help

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion -

AP­PLE­DORE is pre­par­ing for a big spring clean up.

Vol­un­teers are be­ing in­vited to do­nate a cou­ple of hours on the morn­ing of Satur­day, March 28, to help with lit­ter col­lec­tion around the vil­lage.

Parish coun­cil chair­man Frances Smith said: “We con- verge on the vil­lage hall where equip­ment and re­fresh­ments will be avail­able.

“The bor­ough coun­cil will pick up the de­bris the fol­low­ing week and we are ex­pect­ing to col­lect at least as many sacks as last year be­cause peo­ple are still throw­ing rub­bish out of their cars.”

She added: “We col­lected drinks cans, plas­tic sand­wich wrap­pers, plas­tic bot­tles, smokers’ de­bris and oc­ca­sion­ally, very un­pleas­ant items!”

Any­one want­ing to help with the clean up should ar­rive at the vil­lage hall on March 28 at 10am.
