Our Spring Litter pick, to give the Long Leys community a tidy up before summer sets in, will be held 10 am-12 noon on Saturday 6 April 2019. In collaboration with Carholme Councillor Lucinda Preston (who is kindly supplying the equipment) we are again looking for public spirited volunteers from the Long Leys community to clear away rubbish built up on footpaths and hedgerows over the winter, which detracts from the look of the area and impacts on local wildlife. We can provide litter pickers, hi-vis vests, gloves and rubbish bags to those wanting to help. What we need is a small amount of your time and a huge amount of your enthusiasm (and for you to wear robust, non-open toed footwear!) Thanks to our local Travis Perkins branch on Long Leys Road who have kindly allowed us to use their general waste bins again for disposal of collected litter.
There are two sessions planned:
- 10am -10:50am: Meet and return to green area by 142 Long Leys Road (the Albion Crescent lay-by where the mobile library van parks)
- 11am – 11:50am: Meet and return to Whitton Park main entrance on Long Leys Road
If you would like to assist in making our community a litter free and more wildlife-friendly place then please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details. Please let us know which of the two sessions you will be attending.
As an example of areas we hope to cover, see the image below. In the 10-10:50am session we would hope to cover routes L1-3 and for the 11-11:50am session routes L5-6. For those energetic volunteers who come to both sessions then route L4 is also an option. At the end of your session (10:50 or 11:50am) please return your equipment and filled rubbish bags to the meeting point and the rubbish will be driven to Travis Perkins for disposal.
Thank you for your help in making our community a nicer place to live, work and play.
