Town's A38 gets clean-up from Droitwich Spa Litter Squad

THE MAIN A38 from the Chateau Impney to the Kidderminster Road island is the latest area to be targeted by the Droitwich Spa Litter Squad.

Volunteers were out in force on Sunday and cleared more than 50 bags of litter.

Despite their best efforts and because of the extent of the mess the group have vowed to return to the area this weekend.

Some of the rubbish they tried to clear but could not was from an illegal fly-tipping from the 1980s to 1990s. Because the way the bushes have established themselves the area has become impenetrable.

One item found was an election sign for MP Chris Pout who was in Margaret Thatcher’s party in the 1980s.

The group says the clearing of the area is important as there are horses and other wildlife which could ingest the strewn items.

The squad thanked Sandra, Phil, Sue, Sarah and Dave who cleared the rubbish, including larger items that Wychavon District Council picked up this week.
