Keep Britain Tidy are running the Great British Spring Clean between 28/5 and 13/6 to encourage local residents to litter pick. More details can be found via the above link. The website also contains lots of useful information about how to stay safe whilst you are out, especially if you plan to collect litter from near any roads.

Buckinghamshire Council can offer a variety of support to people who officially register for the above. They can supply black sacks and will come and collect the full bags once you notify them of the location. They can also loan litter pickers and other equipment. Please contact the email address below for more information: streetscene.av@buckinghamshire.gov.uk

The parish council has staff that regularly collect litter from our playgrounds, open space, paths and roadsides. At the moment, the recreation ground playground is seeing huge volumes of litter (despite Coronavirus guidelines which recommend that children do not eat or drink whilst using play equipment), and we are emptying bins and picking litter three times per week. In between, other local volunteers are also picking litter to try and keep on top of the situation. If you, or your children, are using the playground, please do put all rubbish in the bins provided to help keep the play space in good condition for all our users.
