Town or City: Wilmslow

Areas covered: Wilmslow

We are a group of volunteers who help keep Wilmslow tidy by organising litter picking events twice a month.  We set our own priorities and are independent of the local councils.   We encourage people to take responsibility for their environment by not dropping their own litter, and perhaps picking up some as they go about their business.

We were set up in October 2013 and started our litter picking events in December – so we are still in our infancy.  We aim to get local businesses to support us (e.g. funding for litter picking equipment, assisting with litter picking events etc).   We are also hoping to work with schools to educate children about the impact of litter on the environment.  At the moment we, on occasion, join forces with the local Guides and Scouts and aid other local community groups as required.  This year we are helping with efforts towards WIlmslow's chance at wininng the RHS 'Growing For Gold' competition, we are doing this by adding extra litter picking events to our calendar and providing a presence on judging day to collect any strays!

We are always on the lookout for new volunteers.   We provide all the equipment, insurance and training.  If you can't attend one of task but would like to collect litter in your own time using our insurance / support, this is also an option and gives you complete flexibility, just ask!

You can keep up to date with our events by visiting our new website or following us on facebook.
