Community Clear Up Day
21st March 2015

Upton in Bloom members took to the river on 'Conny Lee' to pick litter from the riverbanks.

Armed with a normal length & an 8' long litter picker, and a long pruner, we collected two bags of litter - a lot of it was disintegrating plastic bags wrapped around brambles and branches which really didn't want to be collected!

Thanks to Richard who guided Conny Lee into impossible places and reached litter that Shirley & I couldn't!

The best find? Plastic duck number 433 which was lost after one of Upton's Duck Races several years ago.
