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

Gamston Litter Pickers

To join this group please create an account or login

Rubbish disposal and fly tipping is becoming an increasing problem nationally compounded by reduced services across the counties. Many communities are taking it upon themselves to get out and tidy up their local areas by grabbing a bag and a litter picker and spending an hour or so in their immediate local area picking up discarded rubbish. If you are interested in meeting up once a month then please come along on the third Saturday, and together we can make a difference to rubbish and fly tipping in our area. All equipment is provided, including ‘kids kits’ so that children can participate safely too. We meet at 10am at the Gamston Village Hall and are out for a maximum of 2 hours. The monthly litter picking is in Gamston but the equipment is available for all residents of the villages of Adbolton, Bassingfield, Gamston and Holme Pierrepont to use.

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

DORSET DEVILS
Dorset Devils are a group of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole residents who volunteer their free time to clear litter from where they live as well as nearby parks and our beautiful beaches. We each look after our own patch and hope to encourage others to manage their own litter. We are 490+ in number and still growing. We want Dorset to be as litter free as possible but that means everyone needs to play their part for this to happen. Fresh air, gentle exercise guaranteed and some equipment available. Do as much or as little picking as you like and choose the time and place suitable for you, eIther on your own, with someone else or with the Dorset Devils. View this site for details of upcoming events. You are welcome to join us and then you can look after your own patch, whenever it suits you. Always your choice where, when and how long. Help make a difference where you live, play and relax. Bournemouth Borough Council and Bournemouth University fully support our efforts. We support environmental organisations including Marine Conservation Society and Surfer Against Sewage and we are part of Litter Free Dorset. We are active within the community and get involved in a variety of community initiatives including activities with primary school children and scout packs. We are more than just litter pickers as we hope to raise awareness and engage, wherever possible. Follow us on DD Facebook, Twitter and interact through our website. dorsetdevils.org N.B.
