The picker uppers
Starting from a group of two, and hoping to grow, the mantra is 'if it's being dropped, then it needs picking up' ...we are going to fulfil this task, and hope this encourages less dropping, and more picking! If you see rubbish, don't tell us, pick it up yourself!

Fishponds Clean Streets
29th February was another wintry Saturday, but minus a storm this time! 4 of us braved it on the streets of Fishponds and between us collected 6 sacks of rubbish and 4 of recyclables. Well done and thanks! Owing to the Government-imposed restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic we are not currently planning any litter picks. However, when restrictions have been lifted we will resume publicising planned events HERE. PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON THIS WEBPAGE FOR UPDATES. You can e-mail us at: CleanerFishponds@gmail.com. We meet for about an hour and a half approximately monthly, unless the weather prevents us, and pick up litter and recyclables from different parts of Fishponds. We have plenty of litter pickers and a number hi-viz vests. Thanks to Bristol Waste Company who now supply us with waste sacks and others for recycling so you just need to turn up :-) Thinking of getting involved? E-mail: CleanerFishponds@gmail.com for more information. Louise, Pete, Carol & Stuart
