I’m organising a community litter pick in the Honiton St Michael’s ward on Sunday 20th January. The litter pick is supported by the Keep Britain Tidy Big Tidy Up campaign, Honiton Town Council (where I’m a councillor) and East Devon District Council. Volunteers will be provided with tabards and rubbish bags. Local residents wanting to help clean up areas in and around Hazelwood Close, Gronau Close, Brand Road, Honiton Bottom Road and Manor Crescent should meet outside Millwater School at 1pm.
This clean up will show others that we care about the future of our local environment and that dropping litter is simply not on. I live on Hazelwood Close and walk to town through the little pathways connecting our streets. They are often littered with bottles, cans and crisp packets and not pleasant to walk through with my children. Sometimes people even dump sofas and supermarket trolleys there and I’ve phoned local supermarkets or the council to ask them to collect things which have been fly-tipped near my house. Working together like this creates a sense of community and is a good way to meet your neighbours. Please wrap up well and wear a raincoat, any queries call me on 07447597390.
