WYE VALLEY SOCIETY HELP TO KEEP THE AONB FREE OF LITTER

As part of their campaign to enhance the Wye Valley AONB by keeping it tidy for residents and welcoming to visitors, members of the Wye Valley Society put on their hi-vis jackets and stout gloves and set to work in Monmouth's Chippenham Fields last Sunday. With the blessing of Monmouthshire County Council who provided the litterpick sticks and biodegradable bags, the WVS volunteers filled half a dozen sacks.

Matthew Hall, Deputy Chairman of the Wye Valley Society, reported that their efforts were encouraged by many passers-by: 'On a sunny Spring morning and with the right equipment it was a pleasure, and so very rewarding to see Chippenham Fields looking so tidy!'

Residents throughout the Wye Valley are encouraged to organize local litter picks. Just ask your Council offices if you can borrow the equipment, and the Wye Valley Society will be delighted to help. The Wye Valley Society works to protect, enhance and promote the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and to increase public involvement in and understanding of our unique landscape. You can find out more about WVS and join the Society by emailing membership@wyevalleysociety.org.uk.
