A Busy Saturday

This morning went out for a Mega Litter Pick on my Mobility Scooter, I covered 8 miles along Thorney Road, the whole of North Bank and the Cycle Route 63/Kings Dyke back to Whittlesey 3 hours! – Now I was somewhat limited as to what I could collect – so before anyone tells me I missed some!!! – Yes I left considerably a lot more than I could collect.
I finished up with (2) extremely heavy full bags which all I can carry. I must say I don’t think I’ll be doing North Bank again, I was a hindrance to the traffic and found their speed somewhat intimidating.
By the time I got back to Whittlesey it started to drizzle, I did call in at the very busy ‘Hermitage’ Bric & Brac lots of stalls.
I was hoping to go to the Coates Village Fete – but didn’t trust the weather but anyway I hope all went well for them, as this is the first year that they have secured the Village Green again after a few years absence – due to H&S and Insurance concerns/costs.
Upsetting to see what appeared to be a ‘young’ Muntjac deer recently road killed along Peterborough Road.
Muntjac were brought from China to Woburn Park in Bedfordshire in the early 20th century. They are now widespread and increasing in number and range. Deliberate releases and escapes from Woburn, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire led to the establishment of feral populations.
Some claim Asian Muntjac has been named Britain’s most dangerous and destructive deer.

Tomorrow Sunday is ‘Music On The Square’ see previous post.

Next week will see my special 10 year anniversary of ‘Litter Picking’ have I seen any difference – YES – more to come.
