Parkgate Rubbish Cleared Following High Tides

Author: David Johnson Published: 15th January 2018 13:32

The high tides on 3rd and 4th January brought in a huge amount of plastic and timber which had been left behind as the tides retreated.

On Saturday 13th January, 22 Volunteers from the Parkgate Society Community Spirit met and spent a productive morning collecting the rubbish from Parkgate Marsh and the middle slipway.

Parkgate Rubbish Cleared Following High Tides

A couple of people had been out collecting the rubbish near the Old Quay and South Slipway the previous weekend and our thanks must go to them for their work and interest in trying to keep the marsh tidy.

A member of the Community Spirit had also been out and cleared the section from Bevyl Road to Mostyn Square. In all over the two Saturday mornings in excess of 70 bags of mainly plastic rubbish was removed from the Marsh. The timber was also collected and piled below the sea wall ready for removal at a later date.

After two hours of work the Community Spirit volunteers were treated to a warm drink and some hot food kindly supplied by Parkgate Fish and Chips and our thanks go to them.

Thank you to all those who gave a couple of hours on a cold Saturday morning. The Community Spirit Volunteers will be meeting the first Saturday of each month and will be working throughout Parkgate keeping it tidy and presentable ready for the judging in the Cheshire Community Action Best Kept Village competition, which is taking place again this year.

We have a number of ideas to improve Parkgate for our residents and visitors and will be circulating details over the coming weeks. If anyone would like to join us in our litter picks and gardening projects please contact David Johnson community@parkgatesociety.co.uk

You will also find details and updates appearing on the new Parkgate society TWITTER site. @ParkgateSociety.


Sadly, just after we published this article, the following picture arrived, showing the 'work' of, presumably, some ne'er do wells in response to the sterling efforts of the Parkgate Community Spirit volunteers. Words very nearly fail me....

Are you sure the extremely high winds last night weren't to blame ? Our bins and recycling boxes were strewn all over the garden last night and moved some considerable distance after some strong gusts and driving rain.

The bags haven't been split open and contents emtied as far as I can see, so coud these have simply blown over the wall ?

No, reasonable suggestion but the picture was taken yesterday morning. Plus it was some of the bags plus one of the rubbish bins, which would have taken some uprooting.

Understood. Thanks for clarifying.

Neston & Parkgate have some great people, the majority, but we do have more than our fair share of village idiots, and it looks like they have been at work here.

Such a shame.

My Work involves flood prevention primarily around Greater Manchester due to the flashy nature of the River Catchments.

Its a modern scourge. The field teams spend a lot of time clearing water courses of debris to keep water moving but if it does not get removed immediately by flat bed truck, the local amoebas launch it back in the water course.

Maybe some coordination with street scene, or whatever the sliced to the bone front line services are now called, in order for the rubbish to be removed the day of the tidy-up is the solution.

I think the RSPB are organising another litter pick this Tuesday 23 rd January at the bottom of Denhall Lane at 10 am
