THE BIG NORTON WOOD TIDY UP
Keep Britain Tidy are once again encouraging local authorities and residents to dust down their litter picks and seek fresh air for their annual Great British Spring Clean.
Tradition has it that Stroud District Council Neighbourhood Wardens liaise with residents and help to organise joint litter picks. While carrying out the litter picks an environmental visual audit will be undertaken and any bulky items, abandoned vehicles, graffiti, potholes, damaged or obscured road signs will be dealt with where possible at the time or noted for follow up by the relevant authority.
So, you are cordially invited to help litter pick the Norton Wood Estate at Forest Green.
When: Friday 02.03.18
Meet at 09.30 the Arkell Community Centre
Litter picks; gloves; dustbin sacks; reflective vests will be provided and please wear suitable clothing for the day.
Just turn up and join us and help to love where you live.
Dominic Everiss MBE, Senior Neighbourhood Warden, Stroud District Council
