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
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
