April Litter Pick

St. Albans,AL1 2PB

28 Apr 2018

23:00

Help us get spick and span in some of our local green space on the 29th of April at 10:45 for an 11am start. We'll be covering Holyrood Crescent, Creighton Ave, Mandeville drive and a focus on one of the well used green spaces opposite so it's lovely and tidy for the summer months. We have all equipment needed to litter pick but you are very welcome to bring your own if you wish. Additionally you may like to bring the following: - Any first aid supplies you may need while out - A drink to keep hydrated - Anything else you see fit for litter picking Comfy shoes and clothing is highly recommended, please dress for the weather. Please ensure your own safety and others while we are out, if you require insurance, please arrange this yourself but the rules of common sense and being safe apply; don't pick up anything suspicious, sharp, dangerous or heavy and report anything suspicious to local authorities.

Please let the event co-coordinator know during or at the end of the event if you have found anything that will need reporting. A hand out will also be given with details on what and who to report waste to. Hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please email cleanupsopwell@outlook.com Marvellous effort today and we didn't get rained on! We were pleased to see that there wasn't as much litter as before and as a result there were only 9 bags of waste, which is pretty good for such a large area. We're making a difference, slowly but surely. However, we have found an increase of dog mess, this isn't so great and we'll see if we can find some ways to tackle this problem. .

Lady Bay Litterpickers no longer functions as a group. Instead, individuals are issued with equipment to litterpick an area of Lady Bay of their choice, usually the streets immediately around their home and at times convenient to them. If you would like to be involved in this new style of litterpicking, please get in touch - sian.trafford@ntu.ac.uk . Be assured, however, that our aims are still to keep Lady Bay as one of the best places to live, and to generate pride in our community.
