On Saturday 19th March, a clean-up took place of the beach area, lake and parts of the dunes in readiness for the Easter weekend. This was our first clean up and we were pleased to have twelve volunteers.
Dr Jamie Halsall coordinator says “we are very pleased and thankful to those that came to help and to the other offers of further assistance. During this session we collected twelve large bags of rubbish as well as odd things such as a children’s tent. It is a great start but lots more needs to be done”.
Cllr Terry Jones said “I’m pleased with the support and that during a coffee with the volunteers afterwards it is obvious many care about their area and are keen for further sessions. It’s great to see people taking pride in their area especially at times when a minority are trying to vandalise parts of it”.
Dr Halsall continued “during the conversation afterwards the volunteers were asking when will we be out again, we have also had emails offering further assistance on future sessions. We have therefore decided to make this a regular project”.
Due to the passion and the love these people showed at the weekend we have decided to call this new project “LOVE AINSDALE”, we hope to build up a larger team were we can assist the Council in cleaning up our lovely area. Those that join us will be able to put forward suggestions which area we clean up for each session, whether it be the beach, lake or any other part of Ainsdale. If we can step in to help all the other groups working so hard for Ainsdale to improve its look and feel then we will do so.
Cllr Hartill said “If you would like to join us for future sessions please send us you Email address so we can set up a data base and start to organise more events.”
