Plastic Warriors busy along the Glen

The Thursday morning volunteers have been picking up a fair amount of rubbish in the undergrowth – including lots of plastic:

But before the working party was formed this June, the stalwarts from the Sidmouth Plastic Warriors had been very busy picking up other people’s debris.

Here are a couple of postings from over the last years:

And as Rachel Perren said back in September 2018:

I can’t help feeling really sad that due to the neglect by the councils over the past couple of years, this little park is in a sorry state. It has become a place for young people to come, smoke dope and wreck the place. Weeds everywhere, 2 benches smashed this year and railings dangerous and rotten. Sad times.

Rachel (now a Councillor) has been in touch with FOGG – and has been really encouraging – with this post from yesterday:

Let’s hope we can improve the state of this little park over the coming months!
