Spring Clean 2016
Saturday 12th March was Mortimer's annual Spring Clean day which this year was also part of the Clean for the Queen campaign. 1st Mortimer BP Scouts and Cubs did a valiant job clearing litter and dumped items from the roads and verges and open spaces near the Scout Headquarters in the morning. This was followed by 70 volunteers spreading out around the rest of the village to try and clear as much as possible. As ever it was a astounding how much rubbish is in the verges and woods. The village looks much tidier as a result and all those taking part hope it can remain so as long as possible.
We had a special volunteer taking part:
As well as some more local residents
And here are some images of the rubbish collected:
