A damp start to the day provided normal KRA operating conditions for the recent litter pick of Knaphill village, organised by our own Ann Mason and Antony Polack. Helped along by a pack of pickers, we had 15 helpers in all and our thanks go to each of them for giving generously of their time to help improve the village.
A considerable amount of rubbish was collected – the most common offenders being cigarette butts and energy drinks cans. We also found empty wine bottles, clothing, rags, receipts and the usual junk carelessly discarded or blown from topless bins.
Phil Stubbs also took the opportunity to rake the leaves up from the old library site in preparation for the service on the 11th.
Thanks should also go to Kate Wilson from WBC who came over from Surbiton just to help out and lend the use of garbage grabbers and provide bags for Serco to collect.
I’m mightily pleased that we got volunteers to help out and even though we got some funny looks for cleaning the village, it was a worthwhile effort to make the streets just a bit tidier. Lets hope the village can keep it that way for a while!
