Capel Caersalem's litter picking campaign in Caernarfon

Criw Capel Caersalem

A group of chapel volunteers and friends from Capel Caersalem, Caernarfon recently went on a litterpick in the town. During their session the group went to the area between Saint Helen’s Road , Lon Eifion cycle path and over towards Twthill and Feed My Lambs.

The event was organized by chapel member, Arwel E Jones, who said: “Eight of us, including visitors from a Baptist Church in North Carolina, worked together and collected a total 14 bags of rubbish, together with other items, such as a child’s car seat. Thank you to the crew and Tidy Towns and Keep Wales Tidy for their help.”

One of those who taking part was the local Gwynedd Councilor Cai Larsen, who said: "It was great to have the opportunity again to help tidy up areas around the town, and contribute to improving the area. Community pride in action is important and especially when there is so much financial pressure on our local councils.”

Gwynedd Council's Highways Department Cabinet Member, Councillor Gareth Wyn Griffith, said: “Many thanks to the Capel Caersalem volunteers for their litterpick around Caernarfon recently. Clean-up efforts by local people are a great help to improving the environment in our communities, and Gwynedd’s Tidy Towns are extremely grateful for all their hard work.”

Anyone found guilty of littering in any public place could face a court summons and a fine of up to £2,500. To report any instances of fly-tipping, contact Gwynedd Council’s street enforcement team on 01766 771000.
