Veolia has kindly donated 20 litter pickers to Wilderhood Watch, along with gloves, hi-vis jackets and rubbish bags. These have been distributed to residents living on Wilderhood Watch streets so that we can help keep our natural environment free of rubbish.
As well as keeping our Buzz Stops free of rubbish, residents intend to litter pick on their own roads once every month and then all meet up for a coffee afterwards.
Our first co-ordinated Wilderhood Watch street litter pick took place on Friday May 21st 2021. Pictured here are residents litter picking along Gurney Court Rd – looks like fun!
Wilderhood Watch members on Lancaster, Charmouth, Jennings, Burnham roads and The Park joined in, and litter picked along their streets as well as Sandpit Lane and Harptree Way.
And here are Jill and Amanda pitter picking on Jennings and Blenheim Rds!
We used our litter pickers for the first time on Sunday 16th May, 2021, when we picked up rubbish from our Buzz Stops on Sandpit Lane, Lancaster Rd and Sandridge Rd.
