Litter Picking with the Friends

Montage of our litter picking volunteers

We hold a monthly group litter-pick. We’ve been doing this since 2015 (that’s over 110+ sessions). Numbers vary, but there are usually 10-15 of us. We are a mix of demographics, regulars, ones trying it out for the first time. You name it. Everyone is welcome.

Here’s more info:

When: We litter pick on the Second Sunday of every month. Check the top right of our homepage for the latest info as the time and date may change in exceptional circumstances.

Where: Meet by the Art Pavilion.

Time: 10am for a short five minute (mandatory) Health & Safety briefing, followed by the litter-pick.

Duration: 2 hours (though you are welcome to come for less time if you prefer).

Equipment: We supply heavy duty gloves, hand sanitiser, a litter picker, council refuse sacks, a bag hoop (which makes it far easier) and a high viz vest.

Disposing of litter: We drop full/heavy bags off at litter collection points as we go.
