F P Hurley’s Litter Heroes Take Part in Spring Clean Cymru
Once again, our staff have sprung into action to take part in Keep Wales Tidy’s Spring Clean Cymru event. The annual campaign calls on volunteers to pledge their time to clean up the areas in which they live and work. Our staff took to beaches, parks and other beauty sports blighted by litter to help make a positive impact on the environment. Thank you to Robert Raven and Mike Marten who visited Crumlin Burrows Nature Reserve and Jersey Marine Beach adjacent to the new Swansea University Campus, where they cleared an astounding array of discarded items – including over 20 leather shoes, wellies, face masks, a bike wheel, car parts, 75 cans, 50 glass bottles, over 100 plastic bottles and many, many more items!
Thank you to Liam Bradley and Matthew Evans who also took part in the event. They spent a morning cleaning up Coney Beach and surrounding areas where they bumped into former director Gerwyn Davies who also lent a hand.
Further litter picks were carried out in the area around the Genomics Project in Cardiff which has a longstanding littering problem. Thanks to Anthony Isaac and Claire Pilcher for tackling the area- they collected 9 full bags which certainly helped to clean up the area. Also thank you to Adrian Hurley, Carl Myerscough and Claire Pilcher who spent an afternoon cleaning up Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Thank you to all those who volunteered to join the fight against litter, awesome work.
