HOW ABOUT JOINING US TO MAKE OUR VILLAGE CLEAN AND TIDY FOR SPRING?
Members of the HENBURY SOCIETY will be picking up litter in and around the village on Saturday April 7th starting at 9.30 am till about mid day . Meet at the Church Hall Car Park.
To do a good job we need as many volunteers as possible to help so we hope you can spare an hour or two to make the village look clean and tidy as spring approaches.
Protective gloves, litter picking tools, high visibility jackets and refuse bags will be provided. If you can bring along a stiff broom or a shovel that would be useful for some of the jobs but it's not essential.
To help us plan the work it would be most helpful if you could contact Trevor Newton on 07981 903787 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know whether you can join the team on the 7th of April.
Thanking you in anticipation and look forward to seeing you on the 7th.
