In response to the increased litter levels as lock-down rules start to be lifted, some of you have told us that you are ready to start litter-picking again. We also know that many of you are still not comfortable to litter-pick again yet. We do not in any way want to make anyone feel as though they should be back out there if they are not ready. However, we DO want to support anyone who is choosing to litter-pick right now. You can now meet outside in a group of up to 30 people. Please see the Government guidelines for further details https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
BWAG was formed by six residents in 2005 to restore and preserve 600 acres of ancient woodland which was being destroyed by fly tipping and the illegal use of off-road vehicles. On our 1st fly tipping clearance day 60 volunteers removed over 100 tonnes of rubbish -including an Abbey National ATM! The group now has nearly 300 members and raised just over Â£70,000. This has been used to restore footpaths and erect fencing to deter illegal use. The woodland is now litter free and looks cared for. It is being enjoyed by an increasing number of walkers and horse riders and hopefully, over time, wildlife will flourish here once again. For more details visit www.bwag.org.uk
