THERE’S no stopping the Fishponds Clean Streets litter pickers now!.

Their latest session on July 30 resulted in the collection of 16 bags of rubbish - more than all previous efforts combined.

About ten people were involved, picking up rubbish at the Incredible Edible plits by the Co-op on Straits Parade, a bit of Fishponds Rd, some local footpaths and streets then through to New Station Way and a stretch of the cycle track.

They were accompanied as always by Alex Storr, aka The Stapleton Womble, who also carries out solo collections.

Cath Masri-Stone, from the group, said: “Thanks to members of Fishponds Clean Streets, The Fishponds Voice and The Stapleton Womble for spreading the word and increasing the turnout and thanks to everyone who came along.”

You can join the group at  http://www.litteraction.org.uk/fishponds-clean-streets. The next pick will be on Saturday   August 27at 11am, meeting opposite the Co-op on Straits Parade.
