We will be holding a litter pick on Saturday 4 March, as part of the national Great British Spring Clean event. Please meet at 10am at the scout hut. We will be picking up litter along Mill Lane, Melksham Lane and Coombe Lane. Bags and equipment will be provided, but please bring your own gloves if possible.
We are hoping to match the success of last year’s Clean for the Queen, where we collected about 120 bin bags of rubbish.
We have written to McDonald’s and Costa Coffee to ask for their support because their packaging makes up a large proportion of the rubbish we pick up. McDonald’s have donated some litter pickers and hope to supply some volunteers to help our efforts. We have not yet heard back from Costa.
We hope to see as many of you as possible on Saturday.
