Members of a community group are back out helping to spruce up the area in which they live.
And the Friends of Cecilly Brook have been joined by youngsters from Bishop Rawle CE Primary School in their community effort to keep Cheadle tidy.
Anne Beardmore, a member of the friends group said: “In collaboration with Bishop Rawle CE Primary School the Friends of Cecilly Brook took part in this year’s Great British Spring Clean.
“On Thursday June 3, Friends of Cecilly Brook cleared litter from in and around the Brook.
“Five bags of rubbish were removed which included a set of a wheels from a child’s kart, plastic bottles and drinks cans as well as broken glass, plastic bottles, cans and plastic sock tape from the football pitches.
“Meanwhile, pupils from Bishop Rawle CE Primary School took it in turns throughout the whole of the week before half term to go out litter picking.
“They found lots of wrappers, cans and fast food wrappers. The children said they had really enjoyed it.”
Anne added: “Litter can be damaging to pets and wildlife. Animals can cut themselves on sharp metal and broken glass.
“Any litter removed helps wildlife and creates a better space for us humans too.
“Friends of Cecilly Brook have organised another litter pick along the Brook this Sunday (June 20) meeting at South Moorlands Leisure Centre car park at 10am.
“Anyone wishing to help is welcome to join us.”
