If you, your parish council, school or local community group would like to organise a voluntary litter picking event in your area, we can support you by providing equipment, black bags and high visibility vests. We can also collect the bags of litter at the end of your event.
Please call us on 01636 650000, if you would like bags and need to arrange a collection.
We recommend the use of gloves and litter-pickers where possible.
We want more businesses, community groups and individuals to take pride in their community and not drop litter.
Whether it’s as simple as picking up a piece of litter on your walk to the local shops, raising awareness of litter prevention or organising a litter pick in your local area, your support helps make the district a cleaner environment for everyone to enjoy.
The Great British Spring Clean - March 2019
You can create change
The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with a simple aim: to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.
Each year in March Keep Britain Tidy inspires thousands of people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us.
Join the growing army of #LitterHeroes who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.
Together we can make a difference and clean up the environment on our doorstep.
Farnsfield Community Spaces is a volunteer group that helps look after the village keeping it clean and tidy. They plant up and look after the village flower troughs, plant spring bulbs, litter pick and help prepare for the annual best kept village competition and other village events.
Your name will be added to the community spaces mailing list. You will be sent updates on events and invitations to get involved. Dates for village clean-ups and litter picking are also advertised on the Farnsfield Parish Council website and Facebook page.
