Thank you from the Organisers

What a fantastic Riverside Clean today!!!! Thank you so, so much for everyone who joined us, you were amazing!!! A total of 25 adults, 10 children and 3 dogs joined today’s event and cleared an awesome 61lbs (27.67kgs) of litter from the stretch of the riverside between Sandy and the A1 tunnels towards Langford. I am beyond amazed and grateful for everyone’s efforts and support. Tanya Cormano was brilliant, as always, methodically sorting out and weighing the “rescued” litter (details of which will be reported to Surfers Against Sewage, of which Plastic Free Biggleswade is part). Thank you, also, to Fairtrade Association Biggleswade, Biggleswade Good Neighbours and St Andrews Church for supporting the event by providing much needed refreshments, which were kindly donated by the Co-op. And thank you to Biggleswade Town Council for providing litter pickers and bag hoops!!! You’re all absolutely, fantastically brilliant!!
