The first Hoo Clean Up of 2014

It was good to join the first Hoo village litter pick of the year, last Saturday (25 January). It was great to see 20 local residents turning up to help!

The Hoo Clean Up meets every month (usually the last Saturday of the month) and the new meeting point is Hoo Library (Church Street, Hoo). Many thanks to the staff at the library for all their help and assistance with organising the refreshments after the session. Special thanks to SPAR supermarket for supplying all the cakes and nibbles (for free).

The next opportunity to get involved is on Saturday 22 February, meeting at 9.30am outside Hoo Library.

See you there!

The first Hoo Clean Up of 2014

The next Hoo Clean Up event will be on Saturday 25 January, meeting outside Hoo Library (Church Street) at 9.30am.

As well as being the first litter pick of 2014, those attending the event will celebrate the second anniversary of the Hoo Clean Up group. The first ever event was held in January 2012 (pictured below).

Well done to all of those who have given up their time every month to help make the village ‘litter free’, albeit for a little time each month. Such a great effort all round!

The last Clean Up session of 2013 (held on Saturday 30 November) was the most well attended event to date (pictured below).

See you on Saturday 25 January!
