Sopwell Litter Pickers does The Great British Spring Clean!

St. Albans,AL1 2PB

25 Mar 2018

00:00

UPDATE: Clearly the weather is not on our side this month. After discussing this with a few different members, we have decided to rearrange for next Sunday the 25th March, same time, same place. Third times a charm and hopefully we won't be mucked around by the weather any longer this month! While it's pretty, it's a massive inconvenience. Thanks everyone for keeping up to date with our efforts and sticking by us for our picks, we will do our Great British Spring Clean! Have a nice Sunday in the snow and stay warm and safe. Come and help your local litter picking group at the beginning of March as we give our area a spring clean. We want to beat our previous records of litter picking, all for the Great British Clean Up! Start time is 14:00 until 16:00 on the 18th of March We will be meeting at Vesta Avenue shops and making our way down towards the retail park where the litter tends to build up, lets see if we can beat previous records by getting as many bags as possible.

We have all equipment needed to litter pick but you are very welcome to bring your own if you wish. Additionally you may like to bring the following: - Any first aid supplies you may need while out - A drink to keep hydrated - Anything else you see fit for litter picking Comfy shoes and clothing is highly recommended, please dress for the weather. Please ensure your own safety and others while we are out, if you require insurance, please arrange this yourself but the rules of common sense and being safe apply; don't pick up anything suspicious, sharp, dangerous or heavy and report anything suspicious to local authorities. Please let the event co-coordinator know during or at the end of the event if you have found anything that will need reporting. A hand out will also be given with details on what and who to report waste to. Hope to see you there! If you have any questions, please email cleanupsopwell@outlook.com We did amazingly well with 12 volunteers and definitely beat previous records. We collected 24 bags of rubbish, an old tire, fire extinguisher, a cash box (nothing inside) and wood beams. Great work in the Great British Spring clean Spirit! .

Rawcliffe Rubbish Ridders
Founded to counteract the ever-increasing amount of litter, dog fouling etc in our village, the group was established independently of the the Parish Council. East Riding of Yorkshire Council provided high visibility jackets, litter sticks, gloves and bags. We meet fortnightly on the village Green although many members (approx 18 at present) also go about as and when they feel inclined! We have not yet enlisted any younger members but this may happen. We would like to have our own "uniform" so that we can be easily recognised and not mistaken for Community Service people!! Our first annual 3Rs bash takes place in the Co-ordinator's garden on Saturday, August 18th. No litter will be left behind!!
