Litter picking day cancelled

Have your say

A LITTER pick being organised by a Sheffield community group has been cancelled after the death of the organisation’s manager.

Woodthorpe Development Trust and Woodthorpe Primary School had been due to hold the clean-up around the estate on Friday afternoon.

But the funeral of the trust’s manager Karl Barton is now being held the same day, so the litter pick has been called off.

Karl, aged 45, died of an aneurysm in his heart last Sunday, at his home in Kiveton.

The father-of-one’s funeral takes place at 11am on Friday at Grenoside Crematorium.
