Kingdom Clean - The Big Help Out Litter Pick

Stapleford Abbotts to Lambourne


Bank Holiday Monday was officially designated as the day for the Big Help Out - a time for community action as part of the nationwide Coronation celebrations. In Stapleford Abbotts, we combined several themes and launched a litter picking walk that included the inauguration of a Coronation Trail path, complete with commemorative markers which were placed on the day, and an event that joined forces with a team of litter pickers from Lambourne parish. The Stapleford and Lambourne teams started from their respective churches and met in the middle, with a rousing rendition of the National Anthem sung al fresco, a cappella and animato con brio.

Many thanks to all who attended - planners, walkers, pickers, the youngsters who placed the Coronation Trail roundels - and who made it a joyous and successful event. Also many thanks to the weather for holding off until everyone was at their destination! To see more of the day, and the beautiful countryside we walked in, click on the Gallery.
