Peasmarsh village voice

The Peasmarsh Village Society is organising the usual Clean-up Day in conjunction with Keep Britain Tidy on Saturday June 23.

Meet at Brickfields at 9.30am to collect your tabbard, big sack and choose your area to tidy. We finish around 12noon. Don’t forget to wear protective gloves and bring a grabber if you have one - they help with the bending! Children over 7 welcome if accompanied by an adult. Please come along we need you.
