The Big Spring Clean-up in Moulton, Moulton Chapel and Moulton Seas End ends up collecting more than 40 bags of rubbish




Volunteers from Moulton, Moulton Chapel and Moulton Seas End provided their own welcome to springtime by taking part in a clean-up across all three villages.

The spring clean, organised by Moultons Parish Council, resulted in more than 40 bags of litter being rounded up using equipment provided by South Holland District Council which has its Pride clean-up programme across the area.

Coun Andrew Woolf, parish council chariman and a district councillor for Moulton, said "The parish council discussed organising a litter pick at a previous meeting and set a date for it in late February, just before Spring starts to bloom.

"Litter is a hot topic at the moment and it was pleasing to see volunteers turn up in all three villages.

"The feedback we received was extremely positive, with many people offering their support for future litter picks.

" I would personally like to thank everyone involved in making the litter pick such a successful event."

Coun Woolf revealed that amongst the litter collected were more than 30 empty bottles of vodka and a broken bike which was recovered from a ditch.

"I find it very frustrating how litter is just thrown away, making the areas we live in so untidy," Coun Woolf said.

"Why can't people either use public bins or take their rubbish home with them?"
