19kgs of litter and 600 cigarette butts in one hour with only 13 litter enthusiasts on a Sunday afternoon, we call that a win! A few of the regulars and a few first timers got the job done and then some.

 

It's very clear summer has started again with the bins overflowing, people forgetting that we have only one planet and family fun bbqs turning into litter fests without intent.

 

The job is not yet done,but it is for coordinators Yumi and Gilbert, so if you feel that you can help coordinate (one of the) new litter pick Sundays for 2020, get in touch any time.

 

Thanks to all who attended, we might have been small in numbers, but we were big in results!
