A recent community litter pick by enthusiastic staff from McDonald's Garston at Woodside Playing Fields has helped to make Woodside a welcoming place to visit.
McDonald's approached the council's Parks department to ask if they could carry out monthly litter picks at Woodside Playing Fields and Garston Park. They wanted to contribute to their community and these are the nearest parks to their branch.
The litter picks will take place on the third Sunday of each month. They started at Woodside Playing Fields, with the next event on 20 May at Garston Park, then back to Woodside in June. The starting time at both venues is 3pm, meeting in the top car park for Woodside and the Coates Way entrance for Garston Park.
