Local Conservatives Spend Saturday Morning Tending Flower Beds and Collecting Litter

Today, local members of the Wyre Forest Conservative Association gave up their Saturday Morning to tend to flower beds and collect litter in Brinton Park in Kidderminster. Their action was to bring attention to the fact that we are all responsible for looking after our environment.

Giving up their time were members of the District Council cabinet, local activists and Conservative Parliamentary Spokesman, Mark Garnier. The morning was organised by Cllr Marcus Hart, Wyre Forest District Council cabinet member for environmental services.

Speaking afterwards, Mark Garnier commented: “It was a great pleasure for both me and my colleagues to be able to put back into the community just a little of what we get out of it. Graham and his team from the District Council do a terrific job of looking after Brinton Park and it was a treat to be able to help him in a small way. We are all very grateful for his team’s hard work.

“But there is a serious message here. We all have a responsibility to look after our environment and each and every one of us must take that responsibility seriously. Every one of us needs to think just a little bit more about our actions because it is a series of simple, careless actions that results in tons of litter being collected from Wyre Forest’s streets, parks and playgrounds every year. So when you munch on that Werther’s Original, rather than carelessly dropping the wrapper, slip it in your pocket or drop it in one of the bins. After all, we are all paying for this to be collected and cleared up through our taxes.”

Friday Night in Casualty at Staffordshire General

Jeremy Lefroy spent some of Friday night at Staffordshire General Hospital's A&E Department - listening to staff and helping to push a few trollies.

'The staff's team spirit and obvious concern for the welfare of patients when under a lot of pressure were very impressive', commented Jeremy.
