Volunteers: 17 people braved the elements to help clean up Pembroke Dock

THIS MONTH in Pembroke Dock there was a brilliant turnout for the Litter Pick despite the awful weather.

All the volunteers got soaked but like loyal volunteers they braved the elements.

There were 17 altogether and after much hard work 20 Bags were collected in total and most of those were from Gas house Lane and along the public path behind the Welshman’s Arms.

Mayor of Pembroke Dock Peter Kraus said: “This seems to be a Black Spot in our Town. We are doing our very best to get our lovely Town litter free to attract tourists and also for the public to enjoy the scenery, something has to be done.

“We now have companies who are helping with this enormous task including Tesco, MacDonald’s and Asda who join us on a regular basis.

“This month, Tesco was the meeting place for refreshments and I would like to say a massive thank you to Sharon and the fantastic staff who looked after us so well.”

In February there will be another Litter Pick which will be on Thursday, February 25, starting at Tesco Main Entrance.

The Mayor also hopes that the Schools will get involved especially The Community School on Bush Street and the Pennar Community School.

Peter Kraus continued: “It is so important to teach children about dropping litter at a young age so that they could possibly teach some of the parents not to drop litter anywhere and the danger it can be to animals.

“Together we can make our Town a cleaner litter free place to live in and we are doing our bit to help.”
