Riverbank Cleanup

Thornbury,BS35 1PW

13 May 2011

23:00

We are having our annual Riverbank Cleanup on the morning of Saturday 14th May – please join us at 11.00am at the Sailing Club. The aim is to remove all the litter and debris from the riverbank from the Power Station, down past the Sailing Club, to the village boundary towards Whale Wharf. Families and children are very welcome – kids love collecting litter - and we plan, as usual, to finish the cleanup with a BBQ at 13.00 to reward you for your hard work ! There is no cost to take part and all necessary equipment will be provided. 36 people turned out to help at the Riverbank Cleanup last year – let’s see if we can beat that this time. In case you wonder why we are holding it in the morning this year, it’s because that’s when low tide is – we don’t want anyone floating off to Wales for the afternoon. .

Sandbach Clean Team
The group now has over 100 members. It organises monthly litter picks, and members also litter pick in their own local areas.

An important part of our work is with young people. We have met with Junior schools, Brownies and Cubs, and talked about the reduction of litter and recycling.

We liaise with other environmental groups in the area, particularly those with similar aims to ours and we work closely with the local Borough Council.

We have a website:- www.sandbach-cleanteam.co.uk

Keep Forebridge Tidy is a group made up of likeminded individuals within the Forebridge Ward of Stafford who want to keep the area tidy. The scheme works by each volunteer taking ownership of their street, selection of streets or part of their street and keeping it free from litter by conducting regular litter picks. No formal litter picks are arranged allowing volunteers to litter pick as and when they can.

Sopwell Litter Pickers
Hi, I'm Holly and I'm starting out litter picking to help make the area I live in cleaner and more attractive. I walk to work some days and I always marvel at how much rubbish there is, especially after bin collection days and it stays on the streets for weeks, so I wanted to do something about it! Alone but hopefully not for long, I have started picking litter in my area to make it a cleaner and more enjoyable place for everyone. I hope as I get more experience at this I can rally together the troops to start a regular litter picking group to help out and clean up Sopwell! If you'd be interested in joining me, you can send me an email to meet up and arrange a litter picking date. Tel. 07857 944 443 Email. Cleanupsopwell@outlook.com
