Parish spring clean bags 25 sacks of rubbish
Dozens of volunteers turned out on Sunday morning 17 April and were handed bags, gloves, and pickers, all provided by Welwyn Hatfield District Council. The council also removed the collection of rubbish.
The area around Brookmans Park station was cleared by 19 scouts, two scout leaders, and four parents. The local scouts also cleaned up around the entrance to Gobions, the top of Pine Grove, and the Woodside Lane lay-by.
Last year 40 bags of rubbish were collected. According to one of the organisers, Councillor Bob Horrocks, there seemed to be less litter this year, probably due to improved litter-picking by the council.
The event is organised by the North Mymms District Green Belt Society (NMDGBS) and covered four areas.
