Plastic Problems in Dry Drayton.

A plea from Dr Gilly Carr, High Street, Dry Drayton. “I’d like to contact other members of the village to help me in an endeavour, and that is, to help pick up the plastic in the village that litters the grass and curbside and roundabouts throughout the village. My new year’s resolution has been to pick up plastic in the village and every Sunday afternoon I head out with a bin liner and gloves. Within 30 mins or by the time I’ve collected plastic scattered over 10 meters of grass, the bag is full. I have been shocked by the amount of plastic in our little village and I’ve scarcely scratched the surface. I must have removed over  50kg of litter so far, and it cannot all fit in my litter bin alone; one person cannot keep the village tidy, so I’d like to ask for volunteers to help me every Sunday afternoon. Can interested parties email me on gcc20@cam.ac.uk? This is a classic case of ‘Think global, act local’.”
