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.
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!'
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
