All around Acocks Green people are working together to improve the area by cleaning it up. Acocks Green Recreation Ground have a monthly litter pick in the park (first Saturday of the month – 10am), Fox Hollies Park also hold regular litter-picks (this Saturday) and Village in Bloom have been working with Archbishop Ilsleys Yr 7 children to tidy up around the village. Bloom volunteers have also been cleaning up the waste ground on Yardley Road and trying to find out who actually owns this piece of land. New volunteers are always welcome at these events.
Why not talk to your neighbours about cleaning up an area that matters to you? Just a couple of hours a month can make a real difference. Also encourage your friends and family to dispose of their litter appropriately. Prevention is better than cure!
Birmingham City Council will support community litter picks by supplying equipment and organising rubbish to be taken away. Email them at: firstname.lastname@example.org
