Volunteer asks for clean-up help

Pd48882-3 The rubbish down the side of the boxing club

A VOLUNTEER at Grimethorpe and Cudworth's Hard and Fast Boxing Club is asking for help to clear up the mess left by fly tippers.

The boxing club on Barnsley Road, Cudworth, is littered with rubbish.

Fred Gummerson, who runs the club, says after contacting the council to get it removed, they refused on the grounds that it is private property.

He added: "It only needs someone to be messing about for it to be set on fire. We can't afford to move it. We're struggling to keep the gym open as it is."


The gym is run by volunteers.

You would think that Fred of all people could get the rubbish removed, especially by the council! People tend to forget all the good that this guy has done for the community in the past.
