Litter Pick in Bowerhill

Story posted on

KEEP  Britain Tidy is running a Great British Spring Clean 2021 campaign again this year, but as it only runs from 28 May to 13 June, Bowerhill Residents Action Group (BRAG) is unable to arrange a litter pick during this time.

Instead, BRAG is organising their litter pick for Saturday 19th June so if you are unable to do your litter picking during Keep Britain Tidy’s campaign dates, or even if you do, BRAG would welcome volunteers to join them in Bowerhill.

The litter pick will start at Blenheim Park on the green opposite Tesco Express at 2pm, and all are welcome.  BRAG has litter pickers and hoops that volunteers can borrow and some bags if volunteers have not got their own. They will also have litter pickers and hoops borrowed from Melksham Without Parish Council. They ask that volunteers wear suitable clothing and footwear, and bring their own hand sanitiser and gloves if they want them. 

BRAG say they are mindful of the extra precautions that need to be in place because of Covid-19 so they will need names and contact details of all those who join them. Please bear with them while they try to ensure social distancing is maintained and equipment is not shared.  

The litter pick will run for an hour or so, but any time spent will be appreciated so BRAG hope many volunteers can join them.  BRAG have arranged with Wiltshire Council that they will collect the bagged litter from the green on the following Monday.
