Litter Update

by Natalie Clack

Since the last news letter several members of the community have contributed to the litter picking effort. When individuals collect a sack, they send an email to [email protected] to advise.

Did you know that you can pick litter at a time that suits you? PAWARA are able to provide purple bin bags, when needed. New litter pickers are very welcome.

PAWARA has made several community links this summer. We were able to provide the equipment needed for a community pick, organised by Sarah at Church of the Good Shepherd in Crookhorn, in May. The group picked up 5 bin bags of litter in that area.

In June there was a group litter pick held at Johnston’s Coppice and along Purbrook Way 8 community members collected 12 bags of litter along with a large tarpaulin, a traffic cone and a car tyre.

In June I also had the opportunity to meet up with the Purbrook Cub Scouts. We did a pick around Fielders park and the grounds at Purbook Junior School. The cubs thoroughly enjoyed the pick and all said that they would like to continue to litter pick in the future in order to look after the environment.

I have personally done some litter picking at Berewood skate park. Unfortunately this area is a permanent ‘Grot Spot’ that needs regular attention due to lots of broken glass, takeaway packaging and alcohol bottles/cans.

Thank you so much to the local residents who keep their area tidy and pick litter on a regular basis. Your effort is much appreciated.

If you would like to be involved in upcoming community litter picks, please contact [email protected] to add your email to the mailing list.
