On the last Sunday of each month, a lively and friendly group of people come together to pick up any stray bits of litter around the town. During the last couple of gatherings, we’ve filled our bin bags to bursting with cigarette ends, food wrappers, bottle tops, drinks cans and bottles, plus 2 broken prams, cooking pots and half a scooter. And when we’re done, we share our tales of litter over a coffee.
If you would like to join our band of merry pickers, we’ll be meeting outside the Town Hall at 10am on the last Sunday of each month. You’ll be provided with picker sticks, HiVis jackets, gloves, bin bags and hoops to keep the bags open. It’s a lovely way to meet new friends, while exploring and caring for the town we love.
