Thank you to the amazing Litter Pickers who were up early yesterday morning completing the mammoth task of clearing the rubbish accumulated on Outwood Lane.
Escorted by the safety vehicles provided by Reigate and Banstead Council, it took nearly 3 hours of hard work to collect a full van load of litter and fly-tipping debris.
It was a real success of the combined effort by public spirited individuals (Tadworth, Kingswood, Walton & Burgh Heath Litter Pickers – @CleanUpTadworth) working in partnership with the Council to bring back the natural beauty of our Village and the surrounding countryside.
I was honoured to be part of the team and experience the commitment and hard graft that goes into keeping our area free of discarded rubbish. We now need to get the word out to passing vehicles that throwing your waste out onto our streets, verges and hedge groves is socially unacceptable.
A big thank you to the Litter Pickers from everyone in Kingswood.
Cllr Caroline Neame
