wysall's latest news...

This is a photo of the pile of rubbish collected on Saturday 28th February 2021 which I think you may have seen. This included 8 tyres , an office chair , multiple large oil containers and enough bottles of booze to sink two battleships . A mini army of near 30 volunteers all socially distant from each other remaining in their bubbles retrieved this from deep ditches , high edges and green grass!
