Due to the lack of interest in the litter pick are postponing the event.

We’ll let you know when we’ve rescheduled it.

litterPickThe consultation for the Community Led Plan revealed that residents were concerned about litter in the parish. In response to these concerns, Holmer and Shelwik Parish Council is making a special effort this year to “clean up” the parish by organising a Community Litter Pick. If successful, it is hoped that this will become an annual event.

We are asking for volunteers to register with a central co-ordinator, partly to avoid duplication but also so that the necessary risk assessments can be carried out.

Rubbish bags and high-visibility tabards will be supplied and we will have some supplies of gloves and litter picks. The tidying up will start with a short get together in the Holmer Church Centre, Holmer, at 1.30 pm to collect your rubbish bags and you can return your filled bags there afterwards for collection. Participants should pick litter in a minimum group of 2. Young people should only take part under parental supervision or as part of a recognised group.

As an added inducement, refreshments will be provided in the Church Centre that day from 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm for hungry and thirsty tidiers!

If you are prepared to tidy a part of the parish, please contact the Parish Clerk (contact details overleaf) giving your name, contact details and the part of the parish you are willing to tidy on the day.
