Blue Sky Litter Pick

Tomorrow, Saturday the 11th November, is our monthly litter pick in Mile End Park. Why not not pop along and join us? You don’t have to stay the whole two hours, but if you do then I can promise a reward of cake and light refreshments.

This month we are targeting the southern part of the park – meeting by the Art Pavilion at 10am to collect litter kit and have a short Health and Safety briefing before heading south via Chris’ Wood (where we planted 4,500bulbs last weekend) over the Green Bridge and down towards the Ragged School Museum before looping back up to cake heaven at The Coffee Room.

Usually we litter pick on the second Sunday of every month, but as this Sunday is Remembrance Sunday we do it on the Saturday instead.

En route they’ll be plenty to see as the Autumn colours are really brightening up the park. The four cygnets have been moved on by their parents from the Art Pond, but now we have young herons often lurking about. Each day sees more and more snowdrops flowering in Chris’ Wood (which seems a bit early?).

Time: 10-12 noon
Location: Meet by the Art Pavilion (behind the Grove Road Texaco garage)
All equipment provided
Wear sturdy footwear and clothes appropriate to the weather. More info:
