Southport Rubbish Friends are at it again March 25th, 2014 admin Latest News Shares Comments The volunteer litter pickers “Rubbish Friends” will be out and about on the next two Saturdays tackling litter and cleaning up grot spots around Southport. The litter pick on Saturday 29th March will be around the Marine Lake. Councillor Sue McGuire, one of the founders of “Rubbish Friends” explained “The litter pick around the Marine Lake has always signalled the start of our litter picking year and we are delighted to be targeting this area again in 2014.” Councillor Pat Keith will join her Cambridge Ward Colleague to supervise the operation and said “Litter is a blight wherever its found but we are so fortunate that we have a growing group of volunteers who willingly put in their time and effort to clear it. In my opinion they are our “litter heroes.” The second litter pick will be taking place on Saturday 5th April when the group will be cleaning up the section of beach from the former sand-winning plant to Hesketh Road (or beyond depending on the number of volunteers!!) If you would like to be a Southport “Rubbish Friends” please join us at one or both of our upcoming events: Saturday 29th March meeting by the Elim Church on the side of the Marine Lake at 10:30am Saturday 5th April meeting in the car park beside the former sand-winning plant Marine Drive at 10:30am Litter pickers, gloves and rubbish bags will be provided.
