The group litter picks are not permitted during 'Stay at Home' regulations.    The Parish Council is hoping to run some shortly and will advise when the first one will run.  Please keep safe during the Pandemic.
 
YOU SHOULD NOT BE LITTER PICKING ON THE HIGHWAY UNLESS YOU HAVE PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE, RISK ASSESSMENT, HIGH VIS VEST, SUITABLE FOOTWEAR, GLOVES AND GRABBER.   NORSE BAGS ONLY PLEASE FOR COLLECTED LITTER.

 The Community Environment Group, Wollaston Wombles are aiming to litter pick as well as clear leaves, cut back overgrown vegetation from paths and signs, clean signs and report pot holes, damaged paths and blocked drains.       
 
Our first Community Environment litter pick and village tidy will be decided once restrictions are lifted in 2021.    Once we are up and running, please dress appropriately for litter picking.  Bring some gloves.  Grabbers will be provided together with refuse bags for collection by Norse.  You will be provided with a high vis vest too.    Other options are wipes, small spades, brushes, secateurs and notepad for cleaning street signs, cutting back grass from overgrown paths, sweeping paths, cutting back overgrown vegetation on paths, noting blocked drains, signs that need replacing or potholes that need reporting.
 
In the meantime, the Parish Council would welcome residents litter picking and tidying weeds etc outside their own homes during the Pandemic.  thank you.
 
 
 
We look forward to meeting you all and keeping our village tidy, clean and safe.
