Phil Spicksley, in his Lincolnshire Provincial face mask, hands over equipment to Maggie Troop
Barton in North Lincolnshire is getting a major clean-up thanks to a team of volunteers backed by the town’s Freemasons.
Phil Spicksley represented members of St Matthew Chapter to hand over equipment to help the Barton Baggers volunteers in their litter-picking efforts in and around the town. The group’s co-ordinator Maggie Troop was given 40 high-visibility tabards of all sizes from child to extra extra large adult, and 12 rubbish bag hoops.
Said Phil: “Since Covid-19 has dominated our times, the increase in rubbish left around the towns and countryside has grown beyond expectation, and this group has been formed to clean up Barton Upon Humber. The volunteers come from all walks of life and are making a huge impression on the town by clearing up rubbish that is lying around.
“The tabards have been printed to show that the initiative is supported by ‘Freemasons of Barton’ and therefore will show the support that our local lodges have for community initatives.
