The Penistone area Clean, Green and Tidy Team have been out and about again. They report that Church Road is looking much more welcoming since they restored this bench area recently. It has been weeded, scraped, moss removed and the bench sanded and painted to finish off the job.

They’ve also been clearing the build up of litter from several hotspot locations around Penistone. It’s hard to imagine this huge amount of rubbish was dropped and left to destroy our beautiful Penistone environment. They ask that everyone please respect this area and take their rubbish home.

Thank you to the High Hoyland residents who worked safely to carry out a litter pick on Sunday. It was arranged with the Team to collect heavy sacks of waste on Monday morning at set locations, to enable them to cover a wider area without carrying the heavy weight. Even at a distance we can all work together for a cleaner area. For more information, or to request a clean up of your area, call Elaine or Stephen at Penistone Town Hall on Barnsley 770770
