10.00-11.30 am 30 January 2021 Here are details of our next Deep Litter Clearance: For those of you who were with us on January 9th please note that, although at the end of that session I suggested that we might return to the same area of the Downs, having considered comments from a number of you, I have taken your advice and shifted our target area. Meeting Point : On the west side of Ladies Mile at, or close to, the end of the parking spaces on that side of the road & just before the start of Circular Road. Target Area : The west side of Ladies Mile between the tarmac path from Ivywell Road and Circular Road and including the Ash Wood. Some adjacent areas might be added depending on volunteer number, and how many sub-teams we deploy. As last time please bring your own litter pickers if you have them and observe social distancing when we meet to distribute equipment. This will be done from the area on the opposite side of Ladies Mile to avoid contact with joggers. Keep an eye on the weather and come warmly wrapped and with footwear suitable for the terrain. This will be reasonably flat but probably muddy. Pleaser register with Martin, before the event, using the form below.
