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
Lewes Little Gardens is a group of volunteers who undertake litterpicks, tidy-ups and plantings around the town of Lewes. We raise funds for our planting work and to buy litterpicking tools from recycling aluminium drinks cans from local works canteens and small grants such as the Action Earth Ã‚Â£50 grants each year, and also get some help from donations from local people. The group started as a BTCV Natural Pioneer project to get gardening into local schools more and still works with local schools to help provide gardening materials. We have at least one litterpick or other event every month and advertise these locally in a newsletter that goes out to about two thirds of the houses in Lewes, and sometimes in the Parish Pump section of the local paper. We work with local residents groups and lend out our litterpickers them if they are organising a litterpick in their road.
