Every year Keep Britain Tidy work with community groups and individuals to do litter picks and tidy ups in a national campaign. Because of Covid the planned Great British Spring clean ups were postponed but now the campaign is back with a large scale litter pick – thanks to some enthusiastic volunteers and the Active Wellbeing Society. There are also two other Litter Picks organised. Read on!
The weekend of 19th and 20th September there is a litter pick that covers the whole of the no.11 Bus Route. A couple of volunteers are walking the whole route (27 miles!) and asking other groups and individuals to join them on their local stretch of the route. They will be in Acocks Green on Saturday afternoon (2.20pm to 3.15pm approx.) – see the timetable below. Email the co-ordinater if you would like to join in. See email address below:
Also if you just love the satisfaction of tidying up Acocks Green then on:
Sunday 20th September Acocks Green Neighbourhood Forum are organising a litter pick around the Yardley Road and the many side roads. Meet outside the Great Western Pub at 10am. If you haven’t got equipment you can borrow some.
And last but not least Acocks Green Village in Bloom are organsing a village clean up on Sunday 27th September at 10am Equipment provided if you don’t have any and wear gloves. Hope to see you there, making a difference to your local community!
