LITTERPICKER SURPRISE

Father and son litterpickers Andrew and Michael got a big surprise when they uncovered a cylinder of Cream Deluxe Midnight Edition in one of our hedgerows. We hope no one inhaled the 99.9% pure nitrous oxide before dumping it on our roadside and instead produced airy and velvety whipped cream!! Whatever, next time, take your rubbish home!!

BEST BEFORE 28/07/13

Dumped on our roadside more than 10 years ago! Plastic is the scourge of our countryside and much of it finds its way into our waterways and oceans. If left, this would take more than 500 years to degrade!

DANGEROUS WORK!

Clearing our busy roadsides is not for the faint-hearted. But, until motorists stop throwing their rubbish out of their windows, the Litterpickers and Pie Club will be there. Litterpickers don't forget your high-via jackets!
