The town was packed for the Christmas Parade and the turning on of the lights. The Clean Team was there to help with marshalling and enjoyed doing so. It was very nice to receive a note of thanks from Dave Thompson, the Middlewich Town Council Events Manager. Like Dave we look forward to working together to make next year's event even better.

Middlewich Clean Team held a very well attended litter pick this afternoon. There total numbers of helpers were nine. This was fantastic as the weather was not all that good so thanks to everyone that came along. So much litter was picked up that Streetscape had to collect bags from:
  • By the bus stop on St. Michael's Way
  • At the bin opposite the entrance to Somerfield.
  • At the bin by the library.
  • At the bin at Brooks Lane near to the bridge.
The little sweeper was out and about and this gave the opportunity to ask the operator to give the area outside the Take A Way in Wheelock Street a really good sweeping and pay extra attention to the pavement on a regular basis. Which he did, such a nice guy that deserves our thanks.

Cricket Club Bonfire Night

On Sunday Morning (2nd November 2008) we litter picked after the Town Bonfire that was held at the Middlewich Cricket Club. 

Over the past few years the Cricket Club has made a donation of £50.00 to Middlewich Clean Team for helping them to tidy up but on this occasion we decided that we would give the gift back and this money will now be used by the junior section to buy equipment. This is true community working with community.
