Brownies Litter pick

Alveston,BS35 3JQ

18 Mar 2010

00:00

The Brownies are having their own litter pick. Litter Busters are really happy to help out, starting with a short talk before hitting the litter. The recent Alveston Brownie litter pick has been deemed a big success. After a talk about the litter problem by Alveston Litter Busters, the 33 young volunteers set to work to tidy up the local area, finishing outside Marlwood school – particular black spot. Despite the rain, 5 bags of litter were collected and the girls even appeared to enjoy themselves ! Thank you Brownies, this is a great contribution to the community and South Gloucestershire Big Spring Clean Campaign. .

Tidy Tetbury Team
The Tidy Tetbury Team aims to bring together all those who want to see Tetbury kept tidy and looking good and who are happy to help achieve this by coming out to pick up litter. At the moment, we think that the obvious areas that need tidying up from time to time are likely to be The Rec, the area by the old railway shed, Love Lane (between Tesco and The Chipping) and the path behind Hampton Stores that leads to William Romney's School. But we also think that the Tidy Tetbury Team should be there to help and join in with anyone who wants to tackle the litter problem in their part of Tetbury. Our aim is not only to keep Tetbury tidy but to have fun and make new friends as we do so. Please join us by clicking on the "Join this Group" button on the right of this webpage and we will keep you posted on future events.

Sabre Rail
Our groups main aim is to improve the local environment so that it looks cleaner and more presentable as the litter in the area is spoiling the look of where we live and work. We would like to bring together the working community of the business park in order to clean things up a bit by keeping the area litter free. We feel that this would be a great opportunity to meet some of our neighbours, get some gentle exercise and achieve something really valuable at the same time.
