Volunteers carrying bags of rubbish away

Volunteers have cleaned up a woodland in Lichfield which was left covered in litter after more than 1,000 people gathered in the area over the weekend.

Police were called at around 11.15pm on 13th June after reports of the gathering near Brookhay Lane.

Teams from Lichfield Litter Legends and Lichfield Round Table sprung into action yesterday to clear up the rubbish left behind.

“Huge thanks to the volunteers for mobilising to deal with the mess left in private woods.

“Council teams have attended the site and are attempting to liaise with the landowner.

“Thanks too to Staffordshire Police for responsing so promptly.”

  1. That is very impressive. Well done everyone involved. Shows the spirit of community that still exists in the majority of local residents

  2. I literally despair of other peoples’ stupidity and lack of consideration. It’s depressing.

    Still – well done to those that had the decency and dignity to want to clear it up. I hope the moron that arranged this will be severely punished, but I doubt it. 5 hours community service??
