Litter Pick Thursdays (2nd Thursday of each month 10 – 11.30am)
When: Thursday 14th December, 10am.
Volunteers are needed and very welcome. Children or anyone needing additional support will need to be accompanied by an adult carer.
Where: For the first few sessions, the meet up point will be in Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, on the footpath behind the Cricket Pavilion (What3Words point: invite.button.sulk) and we will be supported by the lovely staff from Don Catchment Rivers Trust who are helping us to get the new group established. From March, we hope to have use of our very own litter picking “superbin” to be located in Queen’s Park!
Why: Our aim is to clean up local footpaths and shared walk & cycle routes. We also hope to highlight the problems caused by single use plastics and disposable snack & drink containers, both in terms of litter but also the waste of resources and urgent need to reduce, reuse and recycle!
How: The group will work together to sort out the litter into separate bags as we pick it up. No-one will be working alone, this is a team effort!
What’s provided: We will provide litter picking tools and gloves (Please feel able to bring your own if you have them)
What to bring: Your own reusable drinks cup (for a hot drink at the end of the litter pick session)
What to wear: Sturdy shoes, long sleeves, full leg covering/long trousers, sensible clothes for the weather eg. a warm hat.
Who: We are trying to think of a good name for our new group – any creative ideas are welcome!
