Barnstaple Pilot Gig Members Litter Pick


Last Wednesday, at 6.30pm, at the Boat House, Rolle Quay saw some members of the Barnstaple pilot Gig met with Mrs Recycle - AKA Cathy Karniewicz, for a Litter Pick as part of their bit for "Tidy Up our Town" and members walked from Rolle Quay downstream of the River Yeo towards the Civic Centre and River Taw Estuary. The group used long arm litterpickers thankfully as two soiled nappies were a very unpleasant find, with plastic bottles, magazines, clothing and even a wooden cricket bat !

Nine members = nine less bags of rubbish around the waters edge and possible ending out at sea with a high tide.
