What's Happening?

Our usual monthly litter pick. Have any other groups noticed that, more and more, we appear to be collecting a lot of Fly-tipped stuff as well as the usual 'litter'. This morning's pick was an exampl...

Environment Agency land...

Our next scheduled litter pick is on Sunday 19th May 2019 from 10 a.m. We have long wanted to tackle the area of land owned by the Environment Agency (behind Tesco), as this is particularly unsightly...

New recruits and new regime.

Early Spring sunshine brings out the best in us, but the worst in the litter-bugs! Today we welcomed Michele and Jim, our two newest recruits. As from the start of the year, we now recycle as we pick...

Picking through the snow!

The usual monthly pick will go ahead, weather permitting. Despite a bitterly cold wind and an overnight dusting of snow, a few hardy volunteers ventured out and did a fine job, collecting 11 sack-full...

Winter blues...

Report about January's and February's monthly picks. January's litter pick was something of a damp affair, with a small number of volunteers, so we have made up for that with today's pick. Well attend...

Pre-Christmas pick

Wow, what a turn-out! All 17 of us (including some very young, willing, helpers). Eleven sacks of litter collected. The whole estate looking pristine.

New recruits swell numbers

A usual pick; an unusually high number of new recruits. At today's regular litter pick, we met 6 people wanting to join as new volunteers. We welcome them all. As a small group, we have always had fa...

Apparently there is to be a Great British Spring Clean during the month of March. Well, we here in South Malling have been doing our regular monthly litter picks for the past 9 years. (August 2017 is ...

Great Spring clean-up....UPDATE

For our small group, this was to be just another of our regular monthly picks. However, due to the UK wide publicity about The Great British Spring Clean, I decided to publicise our forthcoming event...

Blake's Walk clear-up.

Usual clear-up, but with the emphasis on a particular footpath. A recent, successful campaign by local residents to 'save' the trees alongside a footpath from being cut down (by a developer), was foll...

Xmas clear-up!

Things looking pretty grim. Hoping for a good turnout. Can't let all this litter hang around during Christmas week. (What is the matter with some people? Litter bins in sight, yet oh, so much litter s...

Spotlight on Malling Litter Pickers

Another regular pick, but this time our local District Council requested photographs of us in action so that our group could be featured in their forthcoming Newsletter. Filled the usual black sacks ...

Where were you...?

I felt very alone on Sunday because no-one else turned up. Maybe it's because of the holiday season and everyone else was away. I hope to have all of you back next month. The Council didn't turn up t...

New Hi-Viz vests bring Hi-Viz recognition.

April's litter pick was blessed with warm sunshine, however, despite a request for more volunteers, we only managed 5 (our trustworthy regulars). At least I was able to distribute our new Hi-Viz vests...

You never know what you are going to find!

The usual monthly pick around our delightful 'home turf'. 6 of us managed to fill 9 sacks in an hour but we also found a huge TV which had been dumped behind the recycling area. How convenient and tho...

Welcome to 2015

OK, so it's been another 2 years since the last update. How time flies. (New Year resolution: must update more often.) The first pick of the new year saw 6 of our regulars out clearing the usual path...

2 years and no events!

It has been nearly two years since I posted an 'event'. Where has the time gone? Needless to say we volunteers have still been out there doing our bit, it's just that I haven't written anything about ...

New Year clear-up

The first litter pick of the year and what a lot we got! Jackie & I put in a stirling effort following all the snow and ice. We collected another 10 bags of litter and cleared a wide area. All members...

After the festive break, let's get together for a good clear-up. Usual time (10 a.m.), usual circumstances (weather permitting) and usual place (outside shop). For this year I propose we meet once a ...

Pre-Xmas

Let's keep up the momentum!

Jackie & Chris managed 5 sacks and cleared the usual pathways.

Regular Sweep

Things are going well. There has been a noticeable reduction in the amount and spread of what we pick up. Well done everyone.

Unfortunately, the foul weather stopped play!

More picking!

I have decided to list some future dates here. 2nd November, 23rd November, 14th December. Meet 10 a.m. outside the shop, depending on the weather. Hope to see you all there.

Old Railway Track

John has suggested we tackle the Recreation Ground end of the old railway track. How about doing the whole lot? See you outside the Shop at 10 a.m. - WEATHER PERMITTING! John & Jackie joined me on a s...

Meet at usual place, usual time. 5 of us tackled the end of season (summer) clear-up along the usual woods & paths route. We managed a dozen or so bags in around 90 minutes + car wh...
