Fishponds Clean Streets
Fishponds Clean Streets was established in 2016 and is run by a few volunteers with the aim of helping keep the streets cleaner of litter.
There was an extended period owing to COVID restrictions when we were not able to operate, however we are back up and running again now.
We usually meet for an hour and a half on a Saturday morning once a month and always publicise our litter picks here on this page, where we also report on our activity after each litter pick.
Meeting at the Fish on its Nose Sculpture on the cycle track on Saturday 2nd April we had a lovely sunny day for our litter pick. We had a fantastic turn-out of 12 adults and three children so we were able to cover a much bigger area than usual, reaching from Guinea Lane to Stanbury Avenue. In between we covered Albert Terrace, Lower Station Road, Filwood Road, New Station Road, parts of Brook Road and of New Station Way. We remain grateful to Bristol Waste for providing the loan of equipment without which the litter picks wouldn\'t happen!
We are aware that the shrubby area between New Station Way and the cycle track is thick with litter and in some parts drug waste, so a request is being made to Bristol City Council to arrange for this area to be cleared.
We hope to organise another litter pick next month and as ever will email details near the time, as well as posting HERE on this page.
In the meantime, if you are new to litter picking in Fishponds and interested in getting involved, please contact us at: CleanerFishponds@gmail.com
