An old wardrobe, a WAGN fire extinguisher, a few sheets of corrugated iron, and 25 bin bags full of rubbish – that’s the haul from the latest North Mymms Parish spring clean.

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.

  • The bus stop lay-by at the junction of Dixons Hill Road and Swanland Road (you can park in Swanland Road) – to clear up the Swallow Holes and part of Swanland Road.
  • Woodside Lane lay-by, Bell Bar (next to the Texaco petrol station) – to clear up the lay-by.
  • The War Memorial, Tollgate Road, at the entrance to North Mymms Park – to clear up the War Memorial grounds.
  • The Scout Hut, Station Road – to clear up Station Road from Brookmans Park to Welham Green.
