Litter picks this weekend – can you help the Great British Spring Clean?

Litter Picks at Stonebridge, Gypsy Lane and Frome town centre – can you help?

A big litter pick is now being organised in Stonebridge on Saturday 4th March from 10.30am to 12 noon, meeting outside the shops at Forest Road as usual. Last year 20 people came to help – please see here for last year’s report.  I am again publicising and helping organise it with Phil & Annabel Macey this year.

A litter pick is being held on Sunday 5th to clean up Gypsy Lane, from 9am to midday, meeting at the corner of Gypsy Lane and Beaconsfield Way, organised by Alex Newton.

People will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing, footwear and gloves, but all other equipment will be provided. These events are open to everyone, and children are welcome.

The Friends of the River Frome is also having a litter pick on Saturday 4th at the Market Yard car park, from 10-12 (before the Frome Independent Market) –  see here for that and more FORF news.

The Great British Spring Clean (see here) is a national campaign that weekend and is also backed by Mendip District Council.

One is also being held in Berkley on Sunday 11am-1pm – please see here for info on the other events.

If anyone would like to help organise a litter pick anywhere else, please let me know or contact Chris Stringer at Frome Town Council (phone 01373 465757, email stringerc@frometowncouncil.gov.uk) or Mendip District Council at NeighbourhoodServices@mendip.gov.uk or 0300 303 8588.
