Wets to get wet on Sunday

(June 28, 2009)

THIS Sunday’s morning of activity by Goerge Jolley’s WETS team concentrated on the Avenue - an area where Vision for Warminster has carried out three previous litter picks.

Armed with brooms and shovels a group of 10 people swept, scraped and hoed away at the rubbish and build-up of grime along this important thoroughfare.

Many hands make light work and after an hour or so of toil the Avenue was looking a good deal better for all the attention.

After this the team broke into two groups with Chris March and Steve Dancey joining George at the Town Hall to keep abreast of the mess created by the pigeon community.

“I think if there is some cleaning up carried out on a regular basis it is possible to keep on top of the worst of the problems caused by the birds in this locality,” said Steve.

The other group tackled the walkway at the side of the old Woolworths and had their work cut out with a significant amount of weed growth.

Next Sunday the team will be needing their Wellington boots as the plan is the clear some of the weed and anything else from the Swan River (or River Were) which runs through the park.

“We’re called the WETS so it will give us an opportunity to get a little wet,” said George.

With a heat wave predicted this week it could prove to be a popular assignment.
