Our Clean Up Days have been a regular activity in Bruce Castle Park: since September 2016 we have been meeting every first Sunday of the month. Fully equipped with litter pickers, high vis vests, gloves, etc. kindly provided by Clean Up UK, we have collected a remarkable amount of rubbish from all areas within the park: 108 bags of litter during 10 Clean Up Days! And in addition we have found all sorts from bricks and microwaves, to mattresses and carpets!
Word is starting to spread and we have been lucky to welcome new people who joined us. And park users have acknowledged our efforts, too.
We also really enjoy to catch up with each other after the litter pick: a competition of home baking seems to have started amongst some of us... :-)
Please join us: the first Sunday of each month, meeting at 2pm at the Pavilion in Bruce Castle Park. Please check the website and twitter, in case there are any last minute changes. Please come and join. And feel free to share your home made cake :-) !
