Trevor’s campaign to clean up Manvers — all by himself

A PENSIONER has begun a one-man campaign to reclaim a Dearne Valley beauty spot from litter.

Trevor Bradley (pictured) is bagging up cans, bottles and other rubbish he finds around Manvers.

He said he decided to take matters into his own hands after being frustrated with how every grass verge and hedgerow appeared to be clogged with discarded waste.

“Walking around Wath and Manvers, you can’t help noticing a lot of plastic bottles and other litter,” he said.

“There’s everything from KFC and McDonald’s cartons to Amazon packaging and even old rags.

“I’m just trying to raise awareness of the issue.

“I know Rotherham Borough Council haven’t got the resources to deal with it so I thought I would do my bit.”

In one morning, Trevor, from Wath, collected two large bags full of rubbish from the verges near the Century Business Park on Manvers Way, as well as a bag of cans he aims to recycle.
