about

Founded: 21st Apr 2014

Town or City: Washington

Areas covered: Ayton village, Ayton Park, Crowther Road, Emerson Road some plantations and surrounding areas.

Presently there are only FIVE active members collecting litter but our intention is to form a larger group of likeminded volunteers to help clean up the immediate and surrounding areas of Ayton Village Washington and to work with the local council to ensure their work is up to acceptable standards that
the rate payers rightly expect. This is a lovely area which is being spoiled by litter being deposited by uncaring individuals and local businesses using poor waste management processes.
If you would like to join the group you would be very welcome just click on the green button at the top right of the opening page and follow the instructions,
If you are unable to assist in collecting litter don't let that prevent you from joining, let the group know of any litter in the area and we will tackle it ASAP
We have made contacts within the local council who are very keen on assisting the group in any way they can.
Many thanks to a friend of the group (M.U.) who has donated two litter pickers. This provides a spare one for anyone who would like to join or help in any litter collections. After applying to CPRE for litter picking materials we were given 3 sets of pickers and hi viz and gloves Thankyou.

To leave the group drop an email your name and details will be removed (no questions asked)
