Talgarth Town FC’s community litter pick is a firm favourite
A football club led the way in Talgarth last weekend as residents got stuck into getting rid of litter from the community.
Organised by Talgarth Town Football Club member Leanne Williams, paricipants who were armed with bin bags and litter picks cleared bags of rubbish from the town.
“Well, what a turn out… I would like to thank each and every one who turned up for our Community Litter Pick this afternoon. The end results says it all.” These were the words of mother of two and Talgarth Town FC Committee Member, Leanne Williams, who organised the Community Litter Pick in and around Talgarth on Sunday afternoon, bringing together Soccer Mums, Grow for Talgarth officers and many more.
People of all ages answered the call and the volunteers were out for over an hour, collecting 11+ bags of litter from around Talgarth. After all the hard work, there was an ample supply of tea & biscuits back at the Talgarth FC Pavilion at King George V Playing Fields, Westfields.
She said: “It was great to see so many children, teenagers and adults collecting litter. A big thank you to everyone involved & fingers crossed we will get another date in the diary soon.”
Gwernyfed Community Councillor, William Lloyd, Chair of the Talgarth and District Regeneration Group, was also there to lend a hand.
He said: “Fair play, this litter pick was a great initiative and congratulations to Leanne and everyone who answered her call for action. I know myself from working with voluntary groups in both Gwernyfed Estate and in Llanigon how positive this kind of volunteering across the generations can be on our community.
“It’s great seeing community connector, Leanne Williams and Talgarth Town FC bringing Talgarth together by organising events such as litter picking and social nights. These activities have been sorely missed over the last two years during the Covid-19 restrictions.”
