Litter picking kits

Published: 25 March 2021

Litter pickingWith spring finally underway, and the anticipation of a lovely summer ahead, why not get involved in helping the Parish look its very best by helping to pick up litter that blights the streets and hedgerows?

10 litter picking kits are available for members of the public to use at any time and are available from The Meeting Place, North Street, Westbourne. A code is required to access the shed (near the side entrance) which can be obtained by contacting us. The kits have been put together with support from Greening Westbourne, the Final Straw Foundation and The Meeting Place.

Over the last year, outdoor spaces and places have mattered to us more than ever, so this spring we are joining the charity Keep Britain Tidy and their Great British Spring Clean campaign (28 May to 13 June 2021).

In previous years, the Parish Council has held an annual Spring Clean Day where a group has met in The Square and has worked together to pick up litter across the village. Due to the pandemic, it has been decided to cancel the event again this year but it is hoped that people will continue to support such a worth while activity. Spring offers the perfect opportunity to clean the village before the leaves and vegetation hides the litter from view.
