ROYAL Air Force High Wycombe personnel take to the streets in a bid to clear the local community of unwanted litter.

On 4 April, over 40 RAF personnel and members of the National Trust Ranger Team volunteered to take part in the Great British Spring Clean, clearing litter from the streets of Naphill and Walters Ash. The organiser Michelle Hamilton said: “this was an ideal opportunity to do our bit for the local community and to work with the National Trust to clean up a site of Special Scientific Interest”.

A part of the Keep Britain Tidy campaign, three teams of personnel, aided with equipment donated by the local council, spread themselves through Walters Ash, Naphill and Park Wood Woods, collecting 18 bags of litter, including 2 bags of bottles and 2 bags of tins. Other items collected included a trampoline, bicycles and car tyres. As much as possible was sent for recycling by Wycombe Council.

Michelle added:
“The main aim of the Great British Spring Clean is to change people’s behaviour about throwing away their litter; hopefully we have done our bit to help achieve this”.
