Your District Council is once again supporting this year’s Keep Britain Tidy backed initiative which launched on 22 March, running until 23 April.
More than 40 litter picking activities have been organised so far as part of the Great British Spring Clean.
Teams have been very busy spring cleaning across the district over the last week. Here are just some examples of what’s been happening.
Village litter pick had an amazing turn out with 24 adults and 6 children taking part (pictured below). In total 25 full bags of litter were collected.Bradley Woods
group collected 19 bags of rubbish as well as some larger items from the woods, all collected in just under 2.5 hours!
Parish Council collected a large amount of rubbish on Saturday 6 April. Ten volunteers (some pictured below) picked litter by the A6 and Mill Road/Lea Road on Saturday.
Tansley Parish Council had a very successful litter pick on Saturday with 11 volunteers on the day. They collected 13 bags and some bigger bits of rubbish.
The Shirley litter pick on Sunday 7 April was also a success with 30 volunteers taking part.
The Carsington and Hopton
