Councillors Pick Litter



On 3rd October, Houghton Regis Councillors undertook a litter pick.  10 people attended at 10am on a sunny Saturday morning in a bid to clean up Houghton Hall and the surrounding area.

After an initial clean up of The Green and the playground, the group split up into two teams.  The first team headed along the Brook and then onto Park Road North. The second team travelled along the path in the opposite direction and ended up at Dog Kennel Walk.

During the 2 hour community event, 17 bags of litter were collected including plastic bags, empty bottles, take away cartons, 2 car hub caps, 2 broken police cones and some chicken wire, to name just some of the many things collected.
