As part of the campaign to clean the streets for the Queen’s 90th birthday volunteers from Dean Rise WI spent an afternoon collecting rubbish on Friday March 4th 2016.

Five bags of rubbish were collected from the station car park and the shops in the parade.

Mary-Lou Kellaway said:” We found a lot of cigarette butts on the floor which are very difficult to tidy up. We really need more cigarette butt disposal bins. We also picked up a lot of bottles.

Some people stopped to ask if we were on community service, which was quite funny. We had to explain to them what we were doing. A lot of people came up and thanked us. People appreciated it.”

Dean Rise WI has now become a registered “adopt a street” group. Visit for details.
