Rubbish clean up at Swains Valley
Last Sunday a group of local volunteers got together to clear a lot of the rubbish that is regularly deposited around Swains Valley.
Around a grassed area which children often use as a playground are footpaths that lead from Haughton Street and Garside Street past Swains Valley allotments and on to the Transpennine Trail which follows the old railway line from Godley to Apethorn.
Amongst the litter thrown into the undergrowth they found old cans, bagged up dog dirt and some things I'd rather not mention at all. The council promised to come and take the collected bags away but last I heard they hadn't yet done so.
