New Clean Team member is an 'inspiration'

Photo: Middlwich Guardian
THE Middlewich Clean Team has welcomed a new volunteer to the group who is inspiring the town.

Victoria Perez, who lives on Ventnor Close in Middlewich, suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), short sightedness and weakness of muscles, leaving her dependent on a wheelchair.

However despite her disabilities, Victoria, who is a newcomer to the town as of last year, is eager to do her bit to keep her new home clean and tidy.

Victoria decided to join the Middlewich Clean Team after hearing about the group and is now looking after the area surrounding her house by litter picking and carrying out general tidy-ups.

Victoria said: “When I first moved in Daren Ketley from the Clean Team helped me and he sort of encouraged me to get involved when I told him about my concerns.

“I just thought it would be something nice to do to help the community.

“I am going to be cleaning and looking after my patch which is Bembridge Drive, Ventnor Close and Stallard Way.”

Victoria also has plans to tidy and reshape the hedges on Bembridge Drive with help from her fellow Clean Team volunteers.

Janet Chisholm, chairperson of the Middlewich Clean Team, said: “Vicky is a remarkable young woman, she’s just so inspirational.

“The Clean Team is all inclusive, anyone can join because we’ve all got our own skills and we’ve all got things to give.

“She’s an inspiration to everybody. If she can do what she is doing from a wheelchair it is fantastic and can encourage other people to do it as well.”

A Card From Tommy Thumbs

Inside: "We really enjoyed your visit. Love from Tommy Thumbs. xxx"
Last January we made our annual Nursery Visits which as well as teaching the children about litter the visits are also very enjoyable. It's a very worthwhile and rewarding time and all the more so when we get a positive message back, so we were thrilled to receive a lovely handmade 'Thank You' card from Tommy Thumbs.

Thank you too Tommy Thumbs.

Litter pick on Saturday

Hello everyone,

Just a quick reminder that we have a litter pick this Saturday 7th March starting at 2pm at Total People car park at the junction of Centurion Way and King Street. The weather forecast looks promising so I hope to see a few of you there.

And don’t forget to bring a friend if you can – they will be made most welcome and a litter pick is a very sociable way to spend an hour.

Kind regards,
Janet Chisholm BEM,
Chairperson, Middlewich Clean Team.
