THE BIG CLEAN IN FALFIELD

We were blessed with a warm sunny day on March 29th as the folk from Falfield

gathered to start the ‘Big Clean’ (sponsored by South Gloucestershire Council).


During the 3 hour stint a total of 18 adults and 8 children gathered 22 bags of rubbish and various other larger items that had been discarded along the village verges and ditches.  Many of the volunteers also worked along the approach road to Junction 14 of the M5, and were dismayed at the rubbish that had been discarded along theses approach roads. All those who took part in any way expressed their exasperation at the way people discard their rubbish with no thought for those that live in the area.


A ‘Big Thank You’ goes to all that came out to help.  A bumper effort was made by whole families as well as individuals. Their effort went a long way to make our Parish look good not only for our Parishioners but for those that travel through the village either north or south.

Jane Hathway, Chair of Falfield Parish council said;

“Thank you to all who gave up their valuable Saturday morning to tidy up Falfield Parish.

Although again we were dis­mayed at the amount of litter which was gath­ered, I hope that those who took part felt the 3 hours spent in gathering the rubbish had been worthwhile and appreciated.  A’ thank you’ also goes to those who helped serve the refreshments of   bacon rolls, hot dogs and hot and cold drinks.

 We look forward to the next ‘Big Clean”.
