This story is a load of rubbish


THEY often say there’s a load of rubbish on TV, but Hurst villagers over the weekend found that the rubbish was the TV.

Like many parishes across the borough, on Saturday the village took part in the annual spring clean picking up litter from hedges, fences, roads and pathways.

And among the debris that these modern-day Wombles collected was a dumped telly.

Cllr Wayne Smith, who chairs Hurst Parish Council, said: “A massive thank you to all those who supported our Hurst Village Spring Clean.

“We had a great turnout and collected a massive amount of rubbish including television­s, car tyres, timber, cans, crisp packets, bottles, sweet wrappers – you name it; it is in one of the bin liners.

“What a load of rubbish!”

And Ken Rowlands Chairman Wokingham Town Centre & Evendons Neighbourh­ood Action Group (NAG) was equally delighted with response in his neck of the woods.

He said: “A big thank you to all the residents and children, including Evendons School pupils, who turned out to clear our Evendons area of rubbish.

“We met at Evendons School at 10am and collected 34 bags plus a hedge trimmer, garden planters, shoes and clothing.

“As chairman of the NAG it is very rewarding to see so many people helping to keep our area clean and tidy.”
