Thank you to the twenty seven parishioners who joined forces with the Parish Council to give the village a Spring clean. On a wonderfully sunny Saturday morning on May 20th
at 9am, volunteers met in the Square, chose their litter picking equipment and fanned out throughout the parish. I am pleased to report the village did not seem as littered as in previous years, so perhaps the LOVE LENHAM – HATE LITTER message is being heard. There are now fourteen volunteer litter pickers who regularly clean their chosen area.
My gratitude is extended to Jacqui who clears Ham lane from Lenham Storage to the Primary school and often further, and to Phil who takes care of the Cherry Close estate.
Up on the downs, Henny and Peter keep the Warren Road and Hubbards Hill area clear of rubbish. Brian and Jo look after the Cherry Downs Picnic site and then carry on the task at Station Approach.
Platts Heath is well served by Wendy, Janet, Rob and Kathy who litter pick various areas from Green Lane along towards Sandway and Runham Lane.
Hugh kindly keeps the area from Tanyards Farm to the Church litter free, whilst Edna ensures Royton Avenue is spic and span.
Merrilyn ensures the Square is tidy and often walks along the A20 collecting debris from inconsiderate passing motorists. Katherine keeps the east of the village around the Old Ashford Road area neat and tidy. Of course there are several ‘unsung heroes’ who often pick up rubbish close to their homes, Sarah, for instance keeps the Pilgrims Way tidy and David often cleans the Faversham Road junction clean. Thank you one and all your support is much appreciated. Keep up the good work!
