On Saturday morning, April 14th some hardy PURE milers braved the fog to complete a litter pick along the 3 miles of the Baltynanima PURE Mile. Just as well Ian Davis, Project manager of the PURE Project had presented us all with PURE Mile Hi Vis jackets which we wore with pride. Over 10 bags were collected in total which was a lot considering the regular clean ups that have taken place over the past year. Waste was segregated into recyclable and non-recyclable where possible. Some interesting items were collected including a few old milk bottles which will now grace some PURE Mile homesteads as flower vases! Due to swimming lessons and other such commitments some residents carried out their litter pick earlier in the week. The pickers got lots of encouragement and praise from cyclists and walkers along the road so the hard work did not go unnoticed. Well done to everyone who came out to do their bit whatever the day. A special word of thanks to Mick, PURE Mile truck driver, for heading up our way (twice!) on Monday morning to collect the rubbish bags.
Our next PURE Mile meeting will take place in Roundwood Parish Hall at 7:30pm on Monday April 30th. All welcome
