Stimulated by a plea from our District Governor, Steve Martin members of the Club scoured the banks of the river Dee on Flint foreshore, with the support of Wendy Jones of Keep Wales Tidy, for rubbish mainly of the plastic variety.
Several bags were collected and it is intended that members continue to support KWT through arranging litter picks throughout the year – flintshire is setting up a hub system where litter pickers, bags etc can be sourced at any time of the year – watch this space!!
That’s the way
We didn’t sit idly by!!! – it’s a lady in wood
Stopped for a well earned rest
When most people look forward to a “lie in” and possible a lazy morning reading the papers before
settling down to the Sunday Roast, members of The Rotary Club of Flint and Holywell were out again
in force this Sunday. This time the team were out on the Flint foreshore, where large volumes of plastic
and other waste materials were collected.
The secretary of The Club, Barry Harrison, who was for many years a pharmacist in Flint commented
that The Rotary Club has been involved in “Beach Clean Ups” for some time now, yet despite all the
publicity about the environmental problems associated with waste material, particularly non bio
degradable plastics, we still find large volumes of detritus littering our coastlines.
