Gavin joined Friends of Bilbrook, a local environmental community group, to tidy up the village. The organised clean up saw small groups between four and six tackle litter and waste.
The event which took place on Saturday 26th September saw over 30 bags of rubbish collected around the village. The event also coincided with the death of valued Friends of Bilbrook member, David Ward.
Gavin was seen tackling rubbish along Duck Lane, Wolverhampton Road and Elliots Lane to assist on keeping South Staffordshire streets clean and tidy.
The national initiative has been kickstarted by Keep Britain Tidy and was organised after the Great British Spring Clean in April was cancelled due to coronavirus.
Speaking on the event, Gavin said: “It was brilliant to get out and help support the great work that Friends of Bilbrook do in the community. They have made great strides in educating school children and the wider community of the benefits of recycling and looking after our environment. It’s always a pleasure to help in any way I can”.
Organiser of the clean-up, Annette Lloyd said: “I want to thank Gavin for supporting us yesterday with our litter pick. We were pleased that so many people turned up to help and we appreciate Gavin supporting us in trying to make changes within our community”.
