Gamston Litter Pickers

Rubbish disposal and fly tipping is becoming an increasing problem nationally compounded by reduced services across the counties. Many communities are taking it upon themselves to get out and tidy up their local areas by grabbing a bag and a litter picker and spending an hour or so in their immediate local area picking up discarded rubbish

The Gamston Litter Pickers usually meet on the third Saturday of each month at Gamston Village Hall at 10am. All equipment is provided and we have ‘kids kits’ so that children can take part safely too. We are out for a maximum of two hours. It is necessary to pre-book participation by emailing no later than the Friday before the litter pick.

The monthly litter picking is in Gamston but the equipment is available for all residents of the villages of Adbolton, Bassingfield, Gamston and Holme Pierrepont to use.
