VILLAGE TIDY UP POSTPONED!
Given the current very cold weather forecast for the weekend ahead, Wiltshire Council have strongly advised that all litter pick events scheduled to take place this weekend are cancelled and rescheduled for the weekend of Friday 23 to Sunday 25 March.
OUR LITTER PICK WILL NOW TAKE PLACE ON SUNDAY 25th MARCH.
The advice received from the emergency planning team at Wiltshire Council and Keep Britain Tidy is that litter pick events should not go ahead if there is any doubt about the safety of participants.
The latest information we have from the Met Office is that the recent cold weather will continue into the weekend, with day time temperatures struggling to reach zero and a significant wind chill making it feel much colder.
Snow is widely expected throughout the county on Thursday and into Friday, with widespread accumulations of 2cms and 5-10cms across higher areas. The low temperatures mean that any snow fall is likely to still be on the ground into Saturday and Sunday.
Whilst this is disappointing, we think safety of those taking part must come first at all times. We have rearranged our litter pick so we can continue to collectively clean up Wiltshire.
