Milverton, Somerset

The Big village clean-up

We had a very good turn out for the village clean up on Saturday 21 May. 20 volunteers came along to help pick up litter in the village.

Although the sky was grey, our volunteers were enthusiastic, and after their litter picking rounds they all enjoyed refreshments and cake and having a chat. Several new people to the village came along and it was good to meet them. Now the thank yous to the volunteers:

  • Special thanks to Karen and Gary Baker for helping organise this, and serving the refreshments and cake to the volunteers. We were very happy to welcome four children who enjoyed hot chocolate and marshmallows with their cake! 
  • The ladies who made the cakes, you know who you are!

Thanks also go to the:

  • Victoria Rooms for letting us use the Reading Rooms and the kitchen
  • Parish Council for supplying tea, coffee and milk
  • Milverton Trust for extra high viz jackets

I would also like to thank the Somerset West and Taunton Council for supplying the litter picking kits which were delivered and collected promptly.
