We know that many people in Holne and Scoriton already do their bit on a regular basis to keep our area clear of litter. As we come out of lockdown I’m proposing we come together as a community and mark the Great Global Clean up which is held in conjunction with international Earth Day (April 21-23). https://www.earthday.org/
If you would like to do your own thing, that’s great: if you would like to meet at Tom and Tina’s Tearoom in Holne at 3.30 on the afternoon of Thursday, April 22, with the minimum of organisation we can decide who might go where to ‘pick’. We just would suggest you bring your own gloves, picker and compostable bags.
Many of us are wondering how things will be this summer as we receive more visitors. To raise awareness, we’ve produced and placed, with the acknowledgement of DNPA, some simple signs around and about to remind people to ‘Keep Nature Clean’. If you would like more information on these, please let us know.
Take a look at – https://cleanup.earthday.org/ We will enter our ‘clean up’ on the map and contribute to this great initiative.
