Rural spring clean
North Mymms residents are joining forces to try to rid the lanes and hedgerows of litter and household waste.
A two hour community wide spring clean has been organised for Sunday April 9 and any volunteers who lend a hand will be bought a complimentary drink at a local pub when the job is done.
The event has been organised by Gobions Woodlands Trust, the North Mymms Residents Association and Friends of the Earth.
Organisers say all are welcome, young and old, and special equipment will be handed out to those who turn up to help.
Litter picking tools, refuse bags and gloves will be provided along with instruction about which areas need clearing.
After a couple of hours work the Residents Association will be buying all those who take part a drink at the Woodman at Water End.
According to organisers, a small amount of time given up by several residents can make a big difference.
They are also urging all those who dump rubbish in public places to use local authority waste sites instead.
People may think that it is acceptable to dump garden rubbish in hedgerows and even over their back garden fences on to other people's land. However this is both an offence and unneighbourly. At the County Council's household waste depot, on the Cranbourne Estate off Mutton Lane in Potters Bar, there is a container specifically for garden waste - which is then shredded and composted, to everyone's benefit, a spokesman said.
Those wanting to help are asked to meet at 10am on Sunday April 9 at Whites Corner in Welham Green where Dellsome Lane meets Dixons Hill Road.
If anyone has any questions they can call Michael Jonas on 01707-260129 (day) or 656531 (evenings).
