Bearpark Big Spring Clean - March 2016

Durham,DH7 7AG

19 Mar 2016

00:00

The Bearpark Big Spring Clean will tie in with Durham County Council's Big Spring Clean initiative. Volunteers and Parish Council representatives will meet outside the Primary School at 10 a.m. where we will return to the location of our very first litter pick along the Colliery Road area of Bearpark, this will include the play area and around the local Primary School. The Parish Council often received complaints about littering in the village and the Big Spring Clean is an ideal opportunity to help raise awareness of the problem and take some positive community action. We look forward to seeing you there. Refreshments will be served afterwards in Bearpark Community Centre at Institute Terrace. Please let us know if you intend on coming along. 18 volunteers turned out for our litter pick on 19 March 2016. It was a brilliant effort and we managed to amass 30 sacks of rubbish in the hour.

We all did our bit to make the Colliery Road area of Bearpark a lot tidier and it really did make a difference. We managed to engage with a few people out walking their dogs who expressed an interest in attending future litter picks, so we might even have some new volunteers on board for next time. Tea and cakes were on offer at the Community Centre afterwards as a thank you to everyone who took part. .

Sopwell Litter Pickers
Hi, I'm Holly and I'm starting out litter picking to help make the area I live in cleaner and more attractive. I walk to work some days and I always marvel at how much rubbish there is, especially after bin collection days and it stays on the streets for weeks, so I wanted to do something about it! Alone but hopefully not for long, I have started picking litter in my area to make it a cleaner and more enjoyable place for everyone. I hope as I get more experience at this I can rally together the troops to start a regular litter picking group to help out and clean up Sopwell! If you'd be interested in joining me, you can send me an email to meet up and arrange a litter picking date. Tel. 07857 944 443 Email. Cleanupsopwell@outlook.com
