Invite to the mayor.

Pride in Pill would like to thank The Right Worshipful the Mayor of Newport, Councillor William Routley for his hospitality this evening at the Civic Centre.

It was lovely to hear all about the history of the building and get the chance to sit in the chambers.

Thankyou for listening to our story …. Pride in Pill ….we are proud to play our part in our community ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

Homeless.

Pride in Pill is a community group ๐Ÿ’š we are here to help all our community… if needed. Homelessness and addiction can sometimes go hand in hand . We understand that life can be chaotic and yesterdays litter pick proves this . We do not judge …We just get on with whatever is needed to help our city become a better place for us all. Life can be complicated even with a roof over your head. Sometimes we just need to listen more and talk less . Life can be hard ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

Thank you to everyone who donated this week and to the 60 new followers who liked๐Ÿ‘our page …. nice evening always lots of smiles , everyone who came to us was fed ๐Ÿ˜ โค ๐Ÿ˜ Night all xxx

Clean up

Hard core pick again today west side of the river 203 bags and sadly 345 sharps!!!

Little picking

The first of two litter picks today…… massive haul of rubbish again from Shaftsbury and riverbank west side. Sadly lots more sharps found and now safely disposed of in PIP sharps box ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ›ขโ˜ข

Litter pick.

Second litter pick of the day was a request from a gentleman who had reported a vacant tent full of sharps to NNC back in December. PIP were straight onto it today and thankfully we all have strong stomachs!!!!!!

โ˜ข๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’‰๐Ÿ’ฉโ˜ข I think this is as bad as it can get !!!!!!! Lots of sharps and items that could be used as offence weapons ๐Ÿ”จโš’โ›

Before and after shots….. warning it’s pretty bad ๐Ÿคฎ
