After the success of the inaugural litter pick, Victoria Park Community Group will be holding another one this coming Sunday (9th October) at 2pm. Please meet by the post box in Battle Street.
Litter picking kits have been ordered from the Council; bags, grabbers, gloves etc will be provided.
You just need bring yourself, appropriately attired – and a sense of fun. Families welcome.
Assuming the weather holds, this should be a nice gentle 90 minutes.
There’s no measurable target – just pick up the litter we can in the time we have and feel a sense of achievement.
There’ll be a bit of admin on the day (everything has a health & safety checklist to go through nowadays!) but otherwise it’s a simple exercise – just grab the litter in public areas and bag it up.
Don’t do anything silly and if you come across nasties (needles, poo etc) or bulky items then the message is simple – don’t touch it! (needles will reported direct to the Council for specialist collection and bulk items will also be dealt with by their team)
We’ll be going for some refreshments/chat afterwards as well.
Look forward to seeing you!
Quinten, VPCG Trustee & Secretary
