The Brixworth Litter Pick – Saturday 18th March

The Brixworth community is playing its part in the Great British Spring Clean of 2017.

We want to keep our village clean and green. Our Spring Clean event takes place on Saturday 18th March and this follows previous successful litter picks. Can you volunteer for a few hours to help remove the unwanted litter in our village?

Meet us at The Ashway at 14:00 where litter picking equipment will be provided along with free refreshments!

Keeping Our Village ‘Clean and Green’

You can access Daventry District Council street scene services quickly and easily on line.

The District Council has a priority for ‘clean and green space’ which is achieved through improved street and environmental cleanliness.  You can report a range of issues including litter picking, street cleaning and dog fouling through its web site.

Reports,  requests, comments, complaints and compliments are all welcome at https://www.daventrydc.gov.uk/online/

Litter Picking Campaign

Due to the success of previous litter picking campaigns, the Parish Council has decided to organise twice-yearly events. The first litter pick of 2017 will take place on Saturday 18th March. Please meet at St David’s Recreation Ground for 2pm. (Finish for 430pm)

The second litter pick will be held late in Autumn and this date is yet to be confirmed. Details of both litter picks will be published on this website and through social media pages.

You may have seen the litter pickers from Amey in the village recently. Following numerous complaints to Daventry District Council by local residents, DDC sent litter pickers to the reported problem areas: Spratton Road (especially around the shops); The Slip; The Ashway; and the stretch of road leading out of the village by the cricket ground.

In general, litterbugs are far more likely to drop their rubbish in spots where there’s already litter around. We won’t stop them altogether, but we now have the opportunity to stop the ‘normalisation’ of litter in the village.
