It’s Suzie Wilde’s birthday. To celebrate, enjoy a riverside walk just outside Winchester, said to be a favourite of Keats.
It’s the latest in Suzie’s weekly series of Wilde Walks around Petersfield with her labrador Raine.
How to get there by car
Take the A272 towards Winchester, turn left at the Spitfire roundabout onto the Winchester bypass, straight over the next roundabout (junction with the M3) and left at the third roundabout onto Garnier Road. There’s a carpark just before the canal.
Arts and crafts experts from the society, George Spear and Sharon Hurst take community radio reporter Alan Cosh around some of the most interesting exhibits at this year’s show and tell the stories behind them.
Join Petersfield Society volunteers as they take to the streets to clear the town of litter and then sort it for analysis and recycling.
The Society reported the findings of its most recent litter pick to a Government consultation that volunteers hope will lead to a deposit and return scheme for drinks containers.
They believe this could reduce litter by as much as 50% and increase the amount of recycled litter.
In the audio diary of this community-wide project, hear from nine of the volunteers including (in order of appearance) Dr Phil Jupp, local children, Damian Hinds MP, Dr Sue Stanley and Cllr Lesley Farrow.
The report was produced by Beth Svarovska who organised the event.
Future litter picks
The next litter pick is between 2 and 10 November. “Clean Up for Remembrance” launches at the Methodist Church between 2 and 4.30pm on Saturday 2 November.
