TEN volunteers from Purfleet joined in the Borough’s Spring Clean Up campaign to clear a 3-400 yard stretch along London Road east of the railway. Over a two hour period on Saturday 50 x sacks of litter and rubbish were collected.
In addition a sofa, a mattress, tyres and other large items including numerous estate agent signs were removed from the streets. Recently Thurrock Council have been working hard trimming back plants in the area.
The litter picks and planting flowers in the former bus turn around by Claire really help tidy up the area. Local resident Charles was so pleased to see ‘Purfleet Pickers’ in action he bought out cups of tea for all, which was most welcome.
Next Saturday 13th April the pickers will be in action again west of the railway. If you wish to take part and become a ‘Purfleet Picker’ please meet at the entrance of Cornwall House Car Park at 10am. Arranged by Purfleet-on-Thames Community Forum
