Our overall aim is to create a litter free island, so residents and visitors alike can enjoy the island and wild life is not harmed by the effects of litter.
Please join our litter picks in 2024. The more the merrier and we all really appreciate the help and companionship. We continue to meet at 10 am at the Victory (or REGISTER and go straight to your area with your own kit, which we will supply). We do appreciate though that some people do want to "do their own thing" and that is also just fine. Equipment and refreshments provided. At the end of each pick there are free drinks and a raffle prize draw for litter pickers.
