Last Saturday (10th March), 30 young members of the Focolare Community took part in a mass-litter pick in Handside and Peartree. The young people were at the Focolare Centre for Unity for a weekend themed #BeyondAllBorders where they focused on how to make a positive difference to our environment.

Lib Dem Council Candidate for Peartree, Tamsin Jackson-Mynott and former LibDem Cllr Michal Siewniak arranged a series of litter-picking walks around Peartree and Handside where the young people gathered 50 bags of litter in just under two hours. The equipment was kindly provided by the council. Tamsin commented that the group did really make a difference, and with the build up of litter over time, they could have gone on for twice as long!

Conleth Burns, one of the young people at the weekend, said "it was brilliant to be outdoors and help make Peartree and Handside a more beautiful place!" He wished to say a special thank you to Tamsin, Michal and all the team at the Council who made the litter pick possible!
