Blooming surprising litter pick

Yesterday the volunteers litter picked Southwood Woodland finding the usual trailer load of litter and metal, and some rather surprising boxes of slightly-aged flowers down Kennels Lane. I’ve spoken with the companies to they can contact the couriers and deliver fresh flowers to the recipients. On a completely unrelated story, some Southwood volunteers now have lovely bunches of flowers to say thank you for all their hard work in the rain.

I have since heard back from the delivery company and I’m pleased to say that they have removed the fly-tipping driver from their business, and delivered fresh flowers to all the customers.

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
