Invitation to join clean-up of Moulton, Moulton Chapel and Moulton Seas End on Saturday, September 28
A clean-up of Moulton, Moulton Chapel and Moulton Seas End is to take place later this month.
People from all three villages are being invited to take pride in where they live by giving up some time to clear rubbish from pavements, greens and roadside verges.
The clean-up takes place on Saturday, September 28, from 10am until noon and is a repeat of an event held in February.
Coun Andrew Woolf, of Moulton Village ward, said: "We started the clean-up as a way for people to take a sense of pride in their community.
"The one we did at the end of February was successful and over 40 bags of litter were collected.
"However, one of the things to come out of it was that people who couldn’t come, for one reason or another, said they would like to be involved in the next one.
"So now we’ve done a spring clean-up, we’re having an autumn one, starting from Moulton Parish Church, before going on to the village halls in Moulton Chapel and Moulton Seas End."
Litter pickers, bags and high-visibility jackets will be provided free of charge for the event, which is supported by both parish and district councillors.
Coun Woolf said: "There seems to be a lot of support from people who want to lend a hand."
Meanwhile, there is a chance that future clean-ups in all three villages could be boosted with from offenders on unpaid work orders handed down by magistrates.
The idea of putting forward projects to be considered as part of the county’s Community Payback scheme was suggested by Moulton Seas End parish councillor Wendy Woolf.
She said: "These teams have done a lot of work in churchyards recently."
Continuing the environmental theme, three new dog mess bag dispensers will soon be appearing in the villages.
Parish councillors are to work with Pinchbeck charity Lincs Dog Training Made Easy to make the biodegradable bags available to dog owners in Moulton, Moulton Chapel and Moulton Seas End, although the exact location for each dispenser is still to be decided.
