ROTARY'S SPRING CLEAN COMES TO KINVER


By Ian Maddock - Posted on 27 March 2012

Kinver Rotarians ready to clean up

Kinver Rotary Club has thrown its weight behind the village’s participation in Staffordshire’s Community Council’s Best Kept Village competition as part of its support for the movement’s nationwide Rotary Spring Clean.

The club has agreed to prepare and maintain the Church Hill area of Kinver in readiness for the judging for the Best Kept Village Competition during a period from May until July. Members will regularly collect litter and general road debris and remove weeds in pavements from Church Hill with its junction with High Street up to and past St Peter’s Church. However they began their task significantly earlier than the competition deadlines as Rotary nationally launched its Rotary Spring clean at the start of Climate Week on March 12 culminating on Earth Day on April 22.

Club president Neil Brazier says: “We always try to support Rotary’s national initiatives that we feel will benefit the community and as the Spring Clean came up immediately prior to the preparations for the Best kept Village Competition everything fell into place nicely.

“We expect to have members out regularly from now until the end of July and we sincerely hope that our efforts will help the village to lift the County title.” He added that nationally Rotary had recognised that there is overwhelming evidence that a tidy environment creates a proud and stronger community and National President Ray Burman has said: “Rotary can play a very simple role in strengthening our communities and with minimal effort make Rotarians more aware of the environment.”
