For the first time Haslingfield are joining in the Keep Britain Tidy Great Spring Clean initiative.
We need teams of volunteers to help. As well as litter picking, we plan to ‘clean up’ certain areas within the village, e.g. the playground.
Other suggestions for areas that need attention are very welcome. Teams will be provided with gloves, litter-pickers and bin-bags (supplied by SCDC), a few hi-vis waistcoats will also be available.
Or just come along to the Village Hall from either 9.30 am or 2.30 pm on the 7th April. The Village Hall will be open from 9.30 to 11.00 am and 2.30 to 4.30 pm.
The Keep Britain Tidy Campaign runs an annual nationwide event, The Great British Spring Clean – for the second year running Barrington is taking part. Haslingfield villagers have been invited to join the Barrington team to help clean Barrington Hill on Friday 22nd March.
If anyone from the village want to help out on Friday 22nd March and wants to start the hill clean from Haslingfield please let Mick Norman know and he will bring some picking stuff over from Barrington. Otherwise please meet at the Barrington Village Hall at 09 30 am.
