Community litter pick

20 Springfield,Thringstone,Coalville,LE67 8LT

24 Oct 2014

23:00

Meet at 10am on The Green and help us keep the village looking nice and clear of litter and debris. All welcome. Sticks, gloves and bags provided. 14 of us went round litter picking today and did very well with our collection of 11 big bags of stuff, all collected by members of our group, despite the fact that we also litter pick daily in our village. Having more people doing a litter pick works well, as you can cover more ground more quickly..

Huntsham
Huntsham is a tiny village in mid Devon. For the last four years, Huntsham Society members and our local community (farmers and all) have joined forces twice a year to clean up all the many the lanes for a distance of 2-3 miles from the village; once in April before the verges are hidden in new growth, and once in October when the vegetation has died down and the litter can be seen. This April we had a turnout of over 100 helpers, including many children. We have recently combined our efforts with Mid Devon County Councils campaign to help keep Devon clean and green, also twice a year. It would be fantastic if neighbouring parishes could take up the challenge of keeping the lanes clear of litter.

iLitterate
I regularly go litter picking in Norwich, usually around Eaton Park and the area around the UEA. If you fancy picking up rubbish, please join! I don\'t have any gear to offer, so you would need to bring your own litter pickers.

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.
