about

Founded: 16th Jun 1995

Town or City: Winchester

Areas covered: Area covered – Winchester city centre and suburbs.

Winchester Litter Pickers were founded in 1995 when three people decided to do more about the litter problem in and around the City.  Currently (August 2016) we have over 40 active volunteers and many more supporters.

We think it is especially important to give visitors to Winchester a good impression of the City.  During the summer months we tidy the Outer Close of the Cathedral daily in the late afternoon and on Monday mornings throughout the year we clear the approaches to the railways station.

Twice a month on Wednesday mornings we clear suburban areas in turn, concentrating on the streets and open spaces near the local shops and in particularly bad black spots.

We are very much into recycling, recovering the cans, glass and plastic bottles we collect wherever practicable.

We are a very sociable group and normally meet up for hot drinks and chats after our litter picks.  We also have a very popular annual party.

Anyone who would like to join us is invited to call Nick Gibbins on 01962 861884 or Elaine Howells on 01962 867519 or email us on tidywinchester@gmail.com.

You are very welcome to join any of our litter picks as a non-member, but if you need a litter grabber, please let us know in advance, so that we can bring along a spare one.
