April Litter Pick - part of The Great British Spring Clean

Our next monthly litter pick will take place on SUNDAY 14th APRIL, starting at 10.00am.

There are some important changes for this litter pick because we have registered it as part of The Great British Spring Clean, a nationwide campaign to attempt to clean up all the litter that blights our beautiful country.

We are hoping for a large turn-out for this event, but we only have limited equipment. Therefore, in order for us to be able to ask CW&C for the loan of additional equipment, should the need arise, can you please let me know, ASAP, if you are planning to join our litter pick. I need to know numbers.

Please let me know at wilde.geoff@tiscali.co.uk, before the end of March.

For this litter pick only, we will meet in the car park opposite Hartford's shops at 10.00am.

There may be some groups who have already registered for The Great British Spring Clean separately. If you have, could you please let me know where you are planning to litter pick so that we do not duplicate our efforts or get in each others' way.

Finally, if you are aware of any particular "grot spots" in the village that we need to concentrate on, again please let me know.

Many thanks and I hope to see lots of you on 14th April.
