Latchford Litter Pickers Posted on 14 Nov 2019


Dear Friends, 



As we are approaching the end of 2019 and its litterpicking season, I'd like to thank everyone who has participated in our litterpicks so far, and those intending to do so. 



Yes the leaves are coming down fast and it's colder and wetter, but that hasn't stopped us so far, and there's plenty to do. Since April we have collected over 550 black bags of litter at various sites across Warrington. And we are not finished yet. This is an ongoing project. 


As before, all litterpickers, bags and hi-vis tabards are provided on the day. All you need is gloves! 


Sunday November 17th, 11.10am-1.10pm.  Warrington Rowing Club. Tidying along the riverbank, starting at the Kingsway Bridge end. Organised with Paul Connor of WRC. We hope to hold future similar Sunday events going forward to tidy the land along the River and the Mersey Way. 


Tuesday November 19th 2pm-4pm. Appleton Thorn, pavements and verges, meet by the Thorn Inn, Appleton Thorn at 2pm. Postcode WA4 4QX. Please email me if you can make it 


Saturday November 23rd 1030-1230 (after Park Run) Loushers Lane Bridge and Black Bear Park. Meet at the playing fields car park (opposite the take away on Loushers Lane, postcode WA4 2RD). 


Tuesday November 26th 2pm-4pm. Warrington Town Centre. Meeting at Go Outdoors, postcode WA1 1PS (we have permission to park from the store). Aiming to tidy town centre locations around Wilson Patten St, Museum St and similar. Please email me if you can make it.


Sunday December 1st 10am-12noon. Latchford Village. Park and meet at Latchford Medical Centre, 5 Thelwall Lane, postcode WA4 1LJ (we have permission to park there). We will tidy Latchford Village and its local neighbourhood.   


Tuesday December 3rd 2pm-4pm, The Tuesday Team will tidy another urban target area. *Please email if you'd like to join the Tuesday Team, we are keen to welcome volunteers. This team focuses on the worst litter hotspots that we can find. We tend to plan 1-2 weeks ahead, to respond to the areas of greatest need.
