Join volunteers in litter blitz to clean up Ordsall parks

Friends of Ordsall Parks are looking for new volunteers to help keep their local area tidy.

If you don’t mind tramping about with fellow Ordsall people picking up bits and pieces from windblown fences and children’s play areas then now’s your chance.

Alongside the litter clearups at Ordsall Park and Monmouth Park there’s flower planting and gardening to get involved in.

Another meeting to watch out for is Saturday 5 March at 11am – where volunteers will be taking part in the UK’s largest litter pick.

Clean for The Queen is asking everyone – individuals, groups, schools, companies, sports teams – to join in with a mass action to clean up the country. The aim is to get one million people out and active during a special clean-up weekend on 4, 5 and 6 March.

After that, there’s monthly sessions planned up till November: Sunday 3 April 1pm; Sunday 1 May 11am; Saturday 4 June 1pm; Sunday 3 July 11am; Sunday 7 August 1pm; Saturday 3 September 11am; Sunday 2 October 1pm; Sunday 6 November 11am.
