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.
We work within prevailing Government regulations, but we are continuing to litter pick on the Island. Please join our litter picks in 2022. The more the merrier and we all really appreciate the help and companionship. Where regulations allow we continue to meet at 10 am at the designated location. 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 is a mystery prize draw for litter pickers. Any changes to venue or time will be notified nearer the time.
