There is a community litter pick event taking place in Brownhills this Sunday, 18th October 2020 from 10am, meeting at Smithys Forge car park in Lichfield Road, Brownhills (Just off the Miner Island) – all are welcome to join in
The pick is being organised by local litter group The Orange Army who put a huge effort in to several litter picks in Brownhills recently – the last one attended by over 30 people – for which I and the blog readership would like to extend our thanks for a top job well done!
In light of current Covid restrictions, the group posted this response on their Facebook page:
Good evening everyone in relation to the new guidance in the fight against coronavirus the litter pick on Sunday can still go ahead!
We ask that you meet at the original place (Smithy’s Forge at 10am) and we will help to sort us into groups of up to 6 to go off and pick in different areas as we need to maintain social distancing.
The Rhino team will be there waiting in the van with all the usual supplies for you to use.
We very much look forward to seeing you all there on Sunday, thank you all for your continued support
It’s easy and fun to join in with these community picks as all kit will be provided!
I like to give as much notice of these sessions as possible as so many people afterwards express sadness that they would have taken part if they’d known sooner…
The pick is being run by committed local volunteer Natalie Dawson and others for the benefit of the the town, so it’ll be a worthwhile event to get involved with and help improve the local environment.
The organisers said:
Our next litter pick will be Sunday 18th at 10am.
We will meet at Smithy’s Forge car park and pick until 12 and then go into the garden at smithy’s forge for tea, coffee or squash courtesy of rhino plumbing and heating!
Hope to see you there

Previous local litter pick events have been a huge success, so let’s see if we can make this one even better!
