I know folk always complain they never caught notice of these, so this is just a note to say there are several local community littler picks coming soon, WASUP have a canal clean at Birchills Top Locak, Brchills, Walsall this weekend, Brownhills Community Wombles will be picking in Brownhills the weekend after as will Walsall Wood Wombles who will meet up for a couple of picks too.
The WASUP Walsall Canal Clean is this coming Saturday 11th January 2020, kicking off at Birchills Top Lock on the Walsall Canal (not far from Smiths Flour Mill Bridge on the Wolverhampton Road) at 10am, working down to Town Arm at the Wharf for 2pm .
The organisers say:
The aim of the day is to walk down the flight and back into the basin.
The van will start at top lock and then I’ll move it to the basin for collection of kit.
The boat will try to collect as much of the offside litter as possible.
The towpath team will have nets and poles to grab floating rubbish and litter pickers will follow them collecting from the towpath.
You can find out more at the event page here.
There’s a community litter pick event taking place in Brownhills, a week next Sunday afternoon, 19th January 2020 from 2pm until 4pm – and all are welcome. All kit will be provided! Meet on Brownhills Methodist Church car park in Silver Street.
On the same day, Sunday 19th January 2020 there will actually be two litter picks in Walsall Wood by their Womble group who will be meeting on the corner of Brookland Road and Brook Lane at 10am to do local streets and canals, then reconvening at 1pm at Walsall Wood Football Club on Oak Park to cover that area and surrounds.
In both cases pickers, bags and gloves provided. All welcome!
You can check out The Brownhills Community Wombles Facebook page here, and there’s a Facebook page for Walsall Wood Wombles here. They’re bot great community spirited collectives and you really are welcome to pop along.
Thanks to all who participate: Real community in action.
Previous local litter pick events have been a huge success, so let’s see if we can make these even better!
