First off, a massive Thank You to all of the people who have supported the Horndean and Clanfield Litter Pick. In the last two years Sally and the team have picked about 750 bags of waste weighing in at over 7 Tons.
Trust me, this includes all sorts of things you really don’t want to know about!
About 30 volunteers have helped out – some regular and some one offs – and we would like to firstname.lastname@example.org a BIG ‘Thank You’ with a lunch for the pickers who have supported the group funded by my EHDC grant allowance.
If you have picked before and would like to join in the next litter pick on Sunday 28th January and join in the lunch then please contact me ASAP so Sally can finalise the booking.
If you’d like to join in for the first pick then the group meets at Morrisons at the far end of the car park at 9:30. Everyone who cares about where we live is welcome!
Whether you are a one off, infrequent or every time picker, Thank You for helping to keep Horndean and Clanfield litter free!
All local EHDC Councillors have an annual £4,500 grant fund for local projects. This year the cut off date is the 9th March and all of us in Horndean and Clanfield have some funds left over.
If you have a community project or club that needs some materials or equipment then speak to your local Councillor. We can each fund up to £1,000 and between us have £22,000 available to be spent before the 9th March. If you have a larger project then we can club together to help.
