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.
Community Litter Pick 2021
Prior to COVID-19 Government guidance, Daventry Town Council launched a monthly litter picking schemes where local residents were asked to pledge just one hour of their time to join the Community Ranger and Ward Councillors targeting areas within Daventry.
Daventry Town Council held various Community Litter Picks, Covid-19 Government guidance permitting, to coincide with The Keep Britain Tidy - Great British Spring Clean Campaign 2021We held three Community Litter Picks across Daventry including Middlemore, Stefen Hill and the Town Centre including New Street Park/Rec. More information can be found on our press release here
These were led by our Community Ranger Charlotte Jones and all equipment required was provided by Daventry Town Council. People were encouraged to bring along their own Litter Picker kits on the day.
