Residents taking control of their own environment.
Since November 2018, a group of dedicated local residents and business people have volunteered to carry out a litter pick in and around New Ferry's District Centre. They meet at 10am on the last Sunday of every month, starting at the Cleveland Arms Pub in Bebington Road, and spend 2 hours clearing away litter from Bebington Road, Woodhead Street Car Park, New Chester Road, and some surrounding areas.
After a health and safety briefing at every session, the volunteers are provided with hi-viz safety jackets, litter grabbers, bin bags and holders, and a range of brooms and gardening tools. At the end of the session, free sandwiches are served in the Cleveland Arms Pub.
The team's efforts have not gone un-noticed, with several people commenting on how well they are doing in cutting down unsightly litter and fly-tipping around the district centre.
If you would like to join in and volunteer your time to help with this worthwhile effort, please come along to the litter picks on the following dates:
If dates and times change, they will be announced on the New Ferry Community Land Trust Facebook page. Please check there before each event.
