WEEKLY LITTER PICKING
On 21st September 2019, which happened to be World Cleanup Day, we began our weekly litter picking project.
Every Saturday we meet as a group from 9.30-11am and pick litter (and fly tipped items) from the streets local to our venues.
In the first month of doing so, we picked 109 bags of litter. The local council have been extremely appreciative of this initiative and
have thanked us for our commitment to the local area.
The aims of this initiative are to:
1. Clean up the streets
2. Raise awareness about littering
3. Strengthen communities
4. Encourage a positive sense of identity
5. Improve self-esteem
Why not join us?
Join us every Saturday from 9.30 at Grovehill Youth Club (Stevenage Rise, HP2 6BH)
where we'll supply you with the tools you need to help clean up our local area!
Tea, Coffee and Juice available from 9.15
This brilliant initiative was inspired by 4 year old Harvey who has already been doing this for almost a year!
