Many thanks to our volunteers and residents for the wonderful things they do to keep our village clean.
Besides the established teams, we know that some of you just pick up litter when you see it – and this is very much appreciated.
The Halfpenny Lane Group of Andrea Ruddick and Louise Wooldridge keep that area tidy, while Rosemarie Nash, Fiona Barker and Candie Mulligan keep the Priory Road area litter free. Charters School have their group of students who deal with Charters Road. Our thanks to Joiy Chan-Meeson who did so much for the community in setting up these initiatives, including encouraging volunteers for our library service. For more information please visit the Sunningdale Litter Pickers Facebook page.
