Lockdown litter picking

It all started with Blue Peter’s 6 badges of summer, Dylan wanted to do a litterpick in the hope that he would get his Green badge.

After asking for suggestions of areas he could go, a few people replied with suggestions. He went out and completed a litter pick in the Torrs riverside park and along the sett Valley trail. 

A friend had suggested that we could raise some sponsorship money, I mentioned this to Dylan, he decided that he wanted to raise some funds for the NHS. 

The next day Dylan collected litter at The Pavillion, the playground at Hague Bar, Thornsett school field these were all suggestions by New Mills Residents. 

We set his justgiving page up yesterday and so far he has raised £155 (and growing) towards his ambitious £1000 target. 


If anyone would like to suggest areas that need clearing up Dylan will only be too happy to oblige!

Well done Dylan from everyone at @visitnewmills
