Group litterpick

Nottingham,NG2 5BA

19 Mar 2016

00:00

SIx members of Lady Bay Litterpickers helped to clean up the Hook and the Trent riverbank this morning, Saturday 19 March 2016. It was chilly and grey but, as well as the usual cans, bottles, packets and wrappers, we bagged a toilet cistern lid and a floor standing footpump. It never ceases to amaze me what people discard in public places. Thanks for all who came - I'll be in touch about another group litterpick when the weather warms up a little. .

Village Action Litter Busters
We are part of the Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath Village Action initiative. We aim to co-ordinate the efforts of local people in promoting awareness of the problem of litter; improving attitudes; and taking part in monthly organised litter picking, with the aim of keeping our villages pleasant and pretty. We know that many residents look after the roadsides and paths adjacent to their own homes and wish to encourage this. Some of our members carry chalk to mark dog fouling on pavements, to help people avoid stepping in it and to tell irresponsible dog owners that they should be clearing up after their pet. Litter picking can be very rewarding, and is an opportunity to get out and make new contacts in the village. Please get in touch if you can help in any way, however small. Please email us if there is any particular area in the village over which you have concerns about litter. In 2012 Nisa - Village Roots in Woodend Road gave us some funds and we have bought some hi-viz vests with 'Volunteer - Village Action Litter Busters' printed on them. We are grateful for their continuing support. South Glos Council support us with sacks, picker sticks and bag hoops. See Upcoming Events for dates and meeting points for monthly litter picks. Please see our gallery below for some pictures of our members, including two younger litter busters!
