Residents, local businesses and organisations are all encouraged to join forces on Saturday 15th July, to sweep in a smart new look for summer. Organised by the Parish Council with support and advice from Hambleton District Council, its aim is to present Sowerby at its best for both local residents and the visitors attracted to the area in the busy season ahead. Cllr Mark Robson, Chairman of the Parish Council, “Sowerby is a well-kept and tidy village but, as in many places, there can be occasional litter and a concerted effort will ensure it stays at its best.” “We are hoping that a lots of local people, including families and business owners will come along and join us.” added Cllr Graham Foxton, one of the organisers who will co-ordinate the event. The clean-up is taking place from 10am to midday and residents and businesses are asked to meet at the Memorial Park or, for more information, contact the Parish Clerk, Alexandra Little, via clerk@sowerbyparishcouncil.org.uk or 01845 574021.
