Todwick News

There will be a village-wide litter pick on Saturday, 8 December 2012, from 10 am to 11 am. We will meet outside the newsagent’s shop, when bags, pickers and safety clothing will be available. Please donate an hour of your time to help make our village look tidier for all those visiting over the festive period. As a Council we would also like to express our thanks to those who have been picking up litter on a regular basis. For general information, the bins outside the shops and the Recreation Ground are emptied every Thursday. This information might assist in the timing of individual litter picks. It can be very frustrating, having collected litter, to then have problems disposing of it.
