Teams turn out to tidy up

About 30 cheerful volunteers turned out to help tidy up around Caistor this morning (Saturday, March 24, 2018).

The sun was out when the group met at the Multi-Use Centre just off the Buttermarket at 10am. A few spots of rain fell after about an hour.

Youngsters from the Grasby Scouts group were among those who joined in the tidy-up, organised by Caistor in Bloom.

The group could still be seen out in force with their grabbers and pink bags around the town up to two hours later.

    Well done to all.
    A fantastic effort by so many people. There’s no wonder Caistor in Bloom got 50 out of 50 for Community spirit in a previous national competition. The first ones ever to achieve this!
    I’m pretty sure Caistor in Bloom is getting back on the competition trail this year after an absence and now have renewed optimism for a good result with this recent turnout.
    Let’s all keep it up and if everyone at least tendered their own frontage it’s surprising how good the town would and will look.
    Anyone wanting to go the further mile and volunteer the odd hour with planting, weeding and general garden maintainance have a word with Michael Galligan.
    Just a reminder – Caistor in Bloom is not the Council. The Council do support generously though. It is an independent voluntary group. No one gets paid and they do it to make the town look nice.
    Let’s make this year special!

    Great turnout by the community to help make Caistor litter free. Once again a wonderful community spirit pervades this lovely town. This was the biggest turnout yet for a litter pickup. In the end there were 45 people involved and nearly 50 bags of litter were removed from the streets of the town.
    Many thanks to everyone who helped out.
