Please consider coming along and helping with next year's clean
The date of the next spring clean is always advertised in Chickerell's Contact magazine
If you still have a litter picker stick from last year, and cannot make this years event - then please bring the stick back, or drop it at Brian's house. Thank you
The Chickerell Spring Clean for 2023 is Saturday 11th March. 10 am at Willowbed Hall, Chickerell. DT34AJ
We always try to provide litter pickers and hoops to volunteers on the day. But if you have your own then please bring it with you. If you still have a picker from previous events, please drop them off at Brian's or bring them to the event. Thank you.
Litter pickers come in various lengths. You should use the correct length for your height. When picking litter off the ground, your back should be straight, and your arm should be straight.
If you are having to bend at the waist then your picker is too short.
If you are having to move your shoulder back whilst dropping litter in the sack, then your picker is too lang.
We have small ones for children.
For average height, the 33 inch picker is ideal, but tall people would be bending forward to use this size of picker. So we have the 37 inch for tall people to use. We also have a 50 inch picker for getting to the back of those thick hedges and the other side of deep ditches.
All of our litter picker tools come from The Helping Hand Company
Don't worry if you're going to be a bit late, simply head to one of the destinations on the leaflet above - and you've sure to see volunteers helping to clear litter from the hedges and ditches
