The Big Village Tidyup

Do you sometimes think that there is too much litter around in our village? If so then why not join “The Big Tidy Up” being organised by our Parish Plan Steering Group.

The date for the litter pick is Saturday 19th September, meeting at the Orpen Hall at 9.30am. All clubs and village organisations, or groups of individuals, are invited to attend to help keep our village “Clean and Green”. It is suggested that volunteers should be in teams of 6/7 with at least one adult in charge. We will then divide the Village up into specific areas so that different teams can “pick” and we will then also get some idea of the areas that need most attention in the future.

Offers of help already received from West Bergholt Football Club and Bergholt Youth Group.

Equipment for picking will be available courtesy of Colchester Borough Council. Tabards, badges and stickers will be available courtesy of “The Big Tidy up” organised by “Keep Britain Tidy”.

For further info and offers of support please contact Harry Stone 241026 or Jenny Church 240792.

As many people as possible are invited to help and there will be refreshments available after the picking is finished. The more volunteers the quicker the Litter Pick will be completed!!!
