Litter-Picking Champions around AG

Our planned Litter Picking activities in March around the area were unfortunately snowed off, both times! However because people are unfortunately still dropping litter there is always a need to help keep our streets clean and tidy.

Sharing the great idea from Olton Literary Litter Pickers, the Village in Bloom team are offering local people the chance to be an official Litter-Picking Champion to tidy up their own area, at a time that suits them. Eight community-spirited people have already joined the project. As a Litter Champion you will receive a litter-picking stick, a High Viz jacket and a supply of official rubbish bags which will be collected by the council when left in one of the local designated collection points. So no need to complain about the litter blighting your streets anymore because you can do something about it! Why not get in touch and become a champion?! Perhaps you could share equipment with your neighbours to keep your street clean. Together we can make a difference. To become a champion click on ‘Contact Us‘ or email Village in Bloom Coordinator : fran.lee47@yahoo.co.uk
