The Great British Spring Clean is well on the way and at the weekend, Tim and his team of volunteers tackled a litter pick in Hatfield with Love Welwyn Hatfield for the #GBSpringClean and the #MillionMileMission. Saturday: Picked Bishop Rise, near St John’s Church 4-5 bags of litter. Sunday: They covered Hazel Grove and retrieved a lot of rubbish out of the woods between Herneshaw and Broom Close. The additional bags collected were added to those collected on Saturday.
