Litter Pick Update

Just four FoSP members turned out for this mornings litter pick – part of the Yorkshire Post campaign to clean up Yorkshire.

The strangest piece of litter recovered was a pregnancy testing kit!

A big thankyou to our own volunteers who yet again gave up their time to make the park a better place.
