A team of men from St Peter’s Ellesmere, known as the Men’s Action Team (SPEMAT), have made a start in tackling the ongoing litter problem in the Carwood area.

Armed with litter pickers and black bags, a team of four cleared litter of all kinds from the area around the Cornerstone on Grimesthope Road, including the Carwood estate, Ellesmere Road North and the bottom of Scott Road. Nine bags
of litter were collected in a couple of hours on the last Saturday morning of March.
