Local MP joins weekend litter pick which bagged up quarter of a tonne of rubbish

Stourbridge MP Suzanne Webb took part in a litter pick at the weekend that bagged up nearly a quarter of a tonne of rubbish in just one hour.

Environmental group, Wild Earth Movement hosted its first community litter pick in Withymoor on Sunday with 30 local volunteers turning up in rainy weather to do their bit. In total, 244KG of rubbish was removed from fields and green spaces in just 60 minutes. Speaking about the event, Suzanne said:

“Everyone had a brilliant time making the best of the weather and making a big difference to Withymoor and I would like to thank Wild Earth Movement for organising its first litter pick and for inviting me to take part in such a successful event!.

“We did a great job cleaning up but it is depressing how much litter people are prepared to leave. Let’s all do our best to take our rubbish home or put it in the bin. Cleaner spaces make a difference to people’s lives and their communities.”

Suzanne also thanked all three Amblecote ward councillors Paul Bradley, Pete Lee and Kamran Razzaq for attending the clean-up in their patch. Cllr Bradley added:

“This was a great community effort and it leaves Withymoor cleaner and its community with a real sense of achievement. Thank you to everyone who came and helped.”

The non-profit organisation is also holding an online raffle. The prizes are a selection of eco-friendly products donated by small businesses. Money raised will be used to fund the purchase of more equipment for future community events.

Tickets are available via the Wild Earth Movement website.
