Inaugural Keep Stoke Tidy Litter Pick

Mayne Street, Stoke-on-Trent ST4 4QY, UK

22 Jan 2022

10:00

*Change to Location* - please see below if you are planning to attend. Hello Everyone, thank you for checking out our new group. In the video that we posted yesterday (please see our Facebook Page) we explain that we have found a massive problem area of litter in Hanford adjacent to the River Trent path between the Hanford Roundabout and Sideway. As this area will only be accessible during the winter (until the hedges grow back) we have decided that it would be sensible to focus on this area for the next month or so. Therefore - we will be changing our proposed litter pick on 22nd January to focus on this area - rather than meeting at the Hanford Co-op. So if anyone wants to join us on 22nd please let us know so that we can arrange a time and meeting point. You will need sturdy boots/wellingtons as the terrain is a little tricky in some places. We will also be going this Saturday (8th) if anyone has a couple of hours free and wants to join. Best wishes and Happy new year. .

Forres Community Clean Up
I have set up this group as I have been cleaning the burn near the Mosset Tavern since early 2011. The river fills up with plastic, glass and an assortment of garbage on a regular occasion. I am barely making any in roads into keeping the river clean and so I thought it would be great to have other community member join in to help. Together we can make the river a great place for the enjoyment of the community. In 2016, we merged our group with Forres Community Clean Up, a local group that cleans the streets and public places in Forres. Joe Pirnie is the co-ordinator of this group
