Spring Clean Cymru and a chance to celebrate (with a pizza afterward)
From time to time we support national clean up days such as Clean Coast Week, Be Tidy etc. We undertake periodic clean ups and often pick up as we find it on our way back from other events and activities. This Spring, we are taking part in Spring Clean Cymru and Spring Clean Torfaen. The former is a national campaign run by Keep Wales Tidy with the support of all Local Authorities while the latter is being promoted by Torfaen CBC and supported by KWT. As a community group we support both campaigns as they raise the importance of action from within communities. Moreover, it shows us that we are part of something much bigger and there are many more people in communities across Wales trying to do similar things.
Spring Clean Cymru
As such we are holding our Spring Clean Cymru/Torfaen event on Sunday 12th March from 10-12. We'll meet at the car park off Birch Grove and collect what we can.
We're part of something bigger
Doing litterpicks is one of our least pleasurable activities, but one we can't stop doing. As such, we've decided that immediately afterwards, we'll be having our first Big Lottery Fund Celebration where we'll be cooking pizzas in our new portable oven (expected arrival end of Feb) under our new branded gazebo for those who are taking part. Apart from the litter what is there not to like.
