Uplyme given a spring clean

Volunteers pictured at the village clean-up in Uplyme

MORE than 20 volunteers, including a number of parish councillors, spent their Sunday morning helping to clear the verges of the main road that runs through Uplyme.

Led by council chairman Chris James, the volunteers cleared litter and weeds from the side of the road with local horticulturists Nigel and Ashley Ball providing tractor and trailer to collect the rubbish.

The volunteers gathered at the Black Dog and, as well as picking up little from the verges up to Woodhouse, they also trimmed the weeds from the roadside and a number of other areas.

The clean-up, which included a number of children, was organised by Uplyme Parish Council’s youngest member, Becky Turner.

Mr James thanked Becky and all those who turned up to help, adding: “It was very successful and we got lots of positive feedback from the parishioners. We will definitely do it again, when the need arises.”
