Purfleet-on-Thames Community Forum’s clean up squad, the ‘Purfleet Pickers’ gathered another 73 x bags of rubbish recently, taking their total to 206 bags collected over 3 picks.
Furniture, old timber, the obligatory mattress, a lorry tyre and many discarded estate agents boards were collected this time.
Organiser Trevor said: “I’m so grateful to everyone that keeps coming out to help pick up the rubbish that gets left round Purfleet. Also a big thank you must go to to The Royal Hotel who rewarded the pickers with tea and biscuits after the big clean-up. We have collected so much to date. Look out for our next dates to become a Purfleet picker.”
