Litter picks are being organised around Frome as part of the Great British Spring Clean. The Great British Spring Clean is a national campaign designed to help keep our streets looking good. Local volunteers are being asked to join in and help make neighbourhoods as clean as possible this spring in time for the warmer weather.
Annabel Macey one of the organisers of this year’s Stonebridge litter pick from Hope Frome explains, “Last year a group of nearly twenty men, women and children took part in the Stonebridge community litter pick in March. We all worked for an hour to clear litter from the stream corridor, open spaces and footpaths, and then went and cleared the edges of the old Showfield too. We collected a lot of rubbish from bushes, open spaces and the stream, including drinks bottles, cans and wrappers, as well as old tyres. Everyone had fun and it was great to see the difference it made.”
To join the Stonebridge event, come along on Saturday 10th March at 10.30am outside Tesco Express on Forest Road, the clean-up will finish at 12 noon. Councillor Adam Boyden said, “This litter pick is an annual event again now and a great way to help keep where we live clean and litter free.” Please contact me Adam Boyden at email@example.com or Annabel Macey on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
People will need to wear suitable outdoor clothing, footwear and gloves. All other equipment will be provided. The events are open to everyone and children are welcome.
