Town or City: Frampton Cotterell & Coalpit Heath

Areas covered: We cover the Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath ward as shown on the Village Action website. We also like to cover some of the lanes and footpaths around the village, including the Frome Valley Walkway which runs through Frampton, and Park Farm Village Green.

We are part of the Frampton Cotterell and Coalpit Heath Village Action initiative.  We aim to co-ordinate the efforts of local people in promoting awareness of the problem of litter; improving attitudes; and taking part in monthly organised litter picking, with the aim of keeping our villages pleasant and pretty.  We know that many residents look after the roadsides and paths adjacent to their own homes and wish to encourage this.    Some of our members carry chalk to mark dog fouling on pavements, to help people avoid stepping in it and to tell irresponsible dog owners that they should be clearing up after their pet.

Litter picking can be very rewarding, and is an opportunity to get out and make new contacts in the village.

Please get in touch if you can help in any way, however small.  Please email us if there is any particular area in the village over which you have concerns about litter.  

We have been talking with managers of local shops and 'take-aways' about litter.  They have been encouraging and supportive of our efforts.  Nisa - Village Roots in Woodend Road have given us some funds and we have bought some hi-viz vests with 'Volunteer - Village Action Litter Busters' printed on them.  This was covered in an article in the Gazette on 1st March 2012 - see picture below (courtesy Gazette).  We are very grateful to Village Roots for this support!


See Upcoming Events for dates and meeting points for monthly litter picks.

We have submitted evidence to the Select Committee on litter

Please see our gallery below for some pictures of our members, including two younger litter busters!
