Our Long Leys Autumn tidy up will be held 10 am-12 noon on Saturday 2 November. If you would like to join us and assist in making our community a litter free and more wildlife-friendly place before winter sets in then please email email@example.com with your contact details. Please let us know which of the two sessions you will be attending:
- 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
LLRA are organising this in collaboration with Carholme Councillor Lucinda Preston (who is kindly supplying the equipment) to help clear away rubbish built up on footpaths and hedgerows over the summer, 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!)
LLRA would like to thank Travis Perkins on Long Leys Road for their support by allowing use of their general waste bins to dispose of the collected rubbish and for generously providing rubbish bags.
Thank you also to all those volunteers willing to “do their bit” for our community.
