Litter picking! It was properly raining when I headed out at 8:30 am on Saturday morning. I armed myself with litter picker, hoop and bag and a spare bag in case it was needed, and my cycling gloves and headed out into the morning greyness.

With longer and warmer days, we're taking another opportunity to clean up our are! Once again, we need to comply with COVID rules and we'll continue to be more data focused on the litter we collect as a community.

In periods of heavy rain our sewers overflow raw sewage into our rivers and seas via Combined Sewer Overflows (CSOs). One of our local volunteers sought out the CSO located near Huckford Viaduct. In 2020 that one spilled 74 times and ran for a total of 110 hours.

On a very windy Saturday morning, around fifty community volunteers in the Winterbourne area left their houses with bags, gloves and litter grabbers and meticulously tried to clean every bit of litter from our roads, lanes and parks, no matter how big or small.

It's spring, the days are getting brighter and longer and it's a great time to clean up our area before the greenery grows and hides it all for another year! This year, is going to be different for two reasons: COVID lockdown and we're planning to be more data focused on the litter we collect as a community.
