1000 Hours team clean up Norwich beauty spot
A group of around 30 adults and children from Gateway Vineyard descended on Mousehold Heath in Norwich on Saturday morning (March 7) armed with litter pickers and plastic bags to clear the local beauty spot of litter.
Armed with equipment from Norwich City Council, the enthusiastic team gathered many bags of rubbish, bottles and tin cans plus an amazing array of other dumped material.
This included car tyres, road signs and cones, garden chairs, a motorbike seat and, incredibly, a rubber dinghy.
Locations of broken glass and used syringes were earmarked for professionals from the city council to attend to later.
The event was organised by Jennifer Barnes and Tom Day. Jennifer said: “We did is as part of the 1000 Hours project to just bless our community and also to raise money for a book development project in Indonesia being led by one of our church members who lives out there.”
