Become a Daventry Litter Hero!
Daventry Town Council wants to make a difference to the environment in our town and has launched a litter picking scheme encouraging residents to target areas that can easily be cleared of litter as part of their daily exercise or have a passion for their environment.
Litter blights our streets and parks and with residents support, Daventry Town Council wants to inspire people to eliminate litter now and for future generations.
Join in and get involved - suitable for all ages.
Community Clear-Up & Litter Picks
Daventry Town Council launched a monthly litter picking schemes in 2020 where local residents were asked to pledge just one hour of their time to join our Community Ranger and Ward Councillors targeting areas within Daventry.
We held various Community Litter Picks throughout 2020 and 2021, Covid-19 Government guidance permitting, and again in 2022. They were held across various Parks & Open Space within Daventry that the Town Council are responsible for. These included Middlemore, Stefen Hill, Southbrook, Wimborne, the Hollow, the Grange, Fishponds, Lang Farm, Headlands, Inlands, Daneholme and the Town Centre including New Street Park also coinciding with The Keep Britain Tidy - Great British Spring Clean Campaign.
