Report on Cottenham litter pick 27 April 2019

Despite the very high winds blowing litter and plastic sacks about, we still managed to deal with quite large amounts of litter in the village while a small team (of 6) cleaned and cleared the Histon Road cycle path.


Help came particularly from the Beaver, Cub and Scout groups and their leaders and accompanying parents – a big thank-you must go to them. There was a smaller turnout than usual from other residents of Cottenham, so next time there needs to be more as we can’t always expect the younger set to give the level of support we got on Saturday.

Given the large number of youngsters involved it’s not possible to work out how many hours were done overall by the whole team – suffice to say they managed to get through a huge amount of cake when they’d finished and they all seemed to have enjoyed their afternoon doing good works.

Oh, and thanks to the cake makers!

Hopefully sunshine next time?? Details of the autumn date in due course!

  1. On behalf of 2nd Cottenham Scout Group thank you for letting us be involved. It was great fun and the cakes at the end were delicious.
