Litter Picking Group

March has been quite a busy month for the litter picking group members.

On the 23rd, seven members of the group met up on Hucknall bypass with the education officer and photographer from Veolia Waste Management to participate in promotional material for Veolia’s Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Scheme from which we were granted our initial funding. Photographs and videos were taken whilst the group litter picked and one member, Terry Hill, even gave a brief interview. The attached photograph shows the group with their final 9 bags of litter.

On 26th March, five members participated in the BBC Radio Nottingham’s One Big Clean Up whereby as many people as possible litter picked their local area. Once again Hucknall bypass was targeted by our group and yet again another 9 bags of litter were collected. Hucknall bypass is clearly a magnet for litter louts! A reporter from BBC Radio Nottingham briefly attended and clearly put Hucknall & District u3a ‘on the map’.

The number of bags of rubbish collected by the group in March totals 47 which is commendable considering quite a few members of the group were either away on holiday or isolating due to Covid.

Should anyone else wish to join our group please contact me on You will be made very welcome!
