VOLUNTEERS have been giving a brush-up to the Park Road Bridge site in East Grinstead over the past couple of weekends.

The team spent two consecutive Sundays clearing the site in liaison with the Town Council.

The area has been a concern to residents as rats, feeding on discarded food, had been increasing in numbers.

About 120 bags of rubbish were removed with 11 shopping trolleys and a host of other debris, such as traffic cones, signs and old batteries.

The clean-up operation was organised by the East Grinstead Scientology Volunteer Minister Group, assisted by residents and town clerk Chris Rolley, who made several journeys to the tip to dispose of the rubbish.

Tom Shuster of the group said: "The intention is to put two waste bins at either side of the bridge, but until that occurs we ask people not to discard their rubbish but take it home with them.

"We also ask other people who have used it as a tip in the past to please only use the council tip. If we are to safeguard and improve our environment, we all do need to assist - even if it is only to dispose of our rubbish properly."
