Cobham Heritage monthly litter-picks: starting Sunday 5 May at 2 pm
As many of you may be aware litter begets litter and is something which blights the UK. Cobham is no exception. Whilst Oxshott and Bookham have their own regular community litter-picks and Transition Cobham do their wonderful bit for our community, we at Cobham Heritage would like to do our bit too.
Please join us, if you can, every first Sunday of the month at 2pm to litter-pick one of our Conservation areas in Cobham, Downside and Stoke d’Abernon. The first of these will meet on Sunday 5th May at 2pm in Cobham at the junction of Church Street and High Street.
Please bring gardening gloves (or similar) and suitable attire. Cobham Heritage will provide a number of high visibility vests as well as litter pickers in addition to litter bags. Cobham Heritage will also coordinate with Joint Waste Solutions for the collection of litter collected.
We appreciate that, in our busy lives, finding a time and day to suit all is impossible. However, the allotted time will hopefully allow for churchgoers in the morning and some luncheon.
Please do not feel that you need to commit to every monthly litter-pick. However, whether you are able to support this initiative, please do consider doing your bit (something I am sure many of you do in any event). This may be pledging to pick up one piece of litter every day, litter-picking outside your house or even your street (well done if you live on the Portsmouth Road!). Elmbridge BC services and enforcement officers rely on proactive engagement from the public. So please report a dirty street, fly tipping or a littering offence (particularly from a vehicle).
