Litter Picking – register now to become a volunteer

Litter by gazebo

Prestbury Parish Council is conscious of increasing amounts of litter on the Prestbury Playing Fields and adjacent Barley Road public open space, and in the rest of the Parish generally.

To address this PPC is going to form a group of litter picking volunteers.

Litter picking events will take place once a month on a Saturday morning between 1000-1200.

Volunteers will be briefed on health and safety by the organisers and be allocated specific focus areas.

Risk Assessment  has been completed to ensure everybody’s safety. Every event will be COVID assessed to protect safety and litter picks will only take place when COVID regulations permit. Gloves, high-vis jackets and rubbish bags will be provided. All volunteers will be asked to sign a disclaimer when they attend their first event Example of the disclaimer
