Macclesfield Express - - YOUR PICTURES -

STAFF and cus­tomers at a su­per­mar­ket came to­gether to spruce up the sur­round­ing area.

The Tesco Com­mu­nity Team from the Hi­bel Road store were joined by Hurds­field coun­cil­lor Steve Carter and cus­tomers for a com­mu­nity lit­ter pick.

The group spent hours traips­ing along the River Bollin and the sur­round­ing ar­eas col­lect­ing rub­bish and ev­i­dence of fly-tip­ping.

The re­sult was a col­lec­tion of 35 bin bags full of rub­bish.

Equip­ment to aid the lit­ter pick, in­clud­ing high-visibility jack­ets, was pro­vided by Cheshire East Bor­ough Coun­cil’s waste depart­ment, which col­lected all the rub­bish at the end of the event.

Sheena King, from the Tesco Com­mu­nity Team, praised ev­ery­one for their help.

She said: “We would like to thank every­body in­volved in this suc­cess­ful event.

“We in­vite any­body in­ter­ested to take part in our next com­mu­nity lit­ter pick in Oc­to­ber.

“De­tails will soon be posted on Tesco’s in-store com­mu­nity board.”

The tidy-up comes weeks af­ter Cheshire East Coun­cil cleared lit­ter on the A523 Silk Road which runs by the Tesco store.
