We had perfect weather conditions for today’s community litter pick with the Ravensbourne Residents Association. With nine volunteers helping including Geoff, Margaret, Steve, Julie, Theresa, Debbie, Jean, Jeff, and Michael. We managed to give Forster Park some love with Geoff sent off to litter pick the difficult areas in the woodlands and Steve and Julie clearing the boundary fence bordering the car park.
The team also covered some of the local streets in the Catford South area including Penderry Rise, Bellingham Road, Thornsbeach Road, Crantock Road, Callander Road, some of Daneby and Bromley Road. I received reports that rubbish levels are very high around Bromley Road by the shops and junctions suggesting better management of litter services is required in such a busy area.
All the bagged litter was taken to the Beckenham Recycling centre. It cost £3 to tip as we are not residents of Bromley borough, it’s quicker and easier to get to than the Lewisham recycling centre in Deptford.
