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

I am retired and collect litter as an individual. I collect litter every morning when I am at home, weather permitting. I deal with about 1km of roads, pavements and open spaces near to where I live, (Herbert Road, Bolton Road, Arthur Street, Regent Park Road), collecting an average of around 14 bags a week. I report fly tipping whenever it occurs and liaise with the local authority Waste Management Team. The photos show the general area that I look after. People find it hard to believe that these streets are in Small Heath given the area is not known for its cleanliness! In the first year I have collected 541 bags. The quantity does seem to be getting a bit less, so let’s hope local people are starting to enjoy living in a more litter free environment.

To walk and enjoy the beauty of the countryside, while making it even more beautiful as we clean up after others. In the age of microplastics no piece of [plastic] litter is too small.

Kirstead Cleaners
We have an annual clean up in the village and mainly on the by-pass which seems to attract vast swathes of rubbish from passing motorists. This event occurs some time in April each year, notice via the Parish Meeting or notice board. We have litter grabbers, safety jackets and black bags!

Shotley Bridge Village Trust
The Trust has been in existence for over 20 years but only started its annual spring litter pick in 2007. Normally between 10 and 20 people turn out to help. We also have individual members that keep their local area free of litter. We are a registered charity, which aims to improve the environment in the village and promote a high standard of development, whether it be in new buildings or the renovation and alteration of existing property. We aim to secure the protection and improvement of features of public and historic interest and encourage an interest in the history of the area. Issues that we have addressed over recent years include the desirability and standard of new development proposals and changes to the use and appearance of existing buildings, a wide variety of traffic and highway issues, litter and dog fouling. We have arranged for the erection of plaques to provide information about people and buildings of historic interest, organised village litter pick days and had a variety of speakers at our open meetings. We have presented Design Awards for the best new development, following a poll of members. In the past we have published booklets of items about the history and development of the village and produced a leaflet of heritage trails in the village. More recently we have produced a local directory and been assisting the local businesses and community groups in organising the Shotley Bridge Victorian Christmas Weekend, including litter picks to keep the village looking attractive during the event. In 2011 we were awarded 'outstanding' in the RHS 'It's Your Neighbourhood" award scheme for Britain in Bloom. We have purchased 50 flower tubs, 8 barrier baskets and a trough for the conservation area and our volunteers plant and maintain summer & winter bedding. in 2012 we entered Northumbria in Bloom and were awarded Silver. We gained a Silver Gilt in 2013 and again in 2014. We are aiming for Gold in 2015. Each year we give awards for the best business & residential floral displays. Open meetings are held 3 times a year in the Catholic Church Hall for members and guests to raise and discuss issues arising in the village. Please visit our website for further information.

Fishponds Clean Streets
29th February was another wintry Saturday, but minus a storm this time! 4 of us braved it on the streets of Fishponds and between us collected 6 sacks of rubbish and 4 of recyclables. Well done and thanks! Owing to the Government-imposed restrictions during the COVID-19 pandemic we are not currently planning any litter picks. However, when restrictions have been lifted we will resume publicising planned events HERE. PLEASE KEEP AN EYE ON THIS WEBPAGE FOR UPDATES. You can e-mail us at: CleanerFishponds@gmail.com. We meet for about an hour and a half approximately monthly, unless the weather prevents us, and pick up litter and recyclables from different parts of Fishponds. We have plenty of litter pickers and a number hi-viz vests. Thanks to Bristol Waste Company who now supply us with waste sacks and others for recycling so you just need to turn up :-) Thinking of getting involved? E-mail: CleanerFishponds@gmail.com for more information. Louise, Pete, Carol & Stuart
