Welcome to the Kingswood Litter Pickers, now a permanent feature in our Website.
Established in August 2020, Kingswood Litter Pickers are part of a larger five village community (Tadworth, Kingswood, Walton, Burgh Heath and Lower Kingswood) of litter picking volunteers all with a common objective of improving the environment on our doorstep.
Establishing a litter free neighbourhood for Kingswood and our surrounding villages is vital for the sustainability of a thriving community and diverse ecosystem. We owe it to ourselves, future generations and the wildlife that inhabits this beautiful part of the country to behave responsibly. Our litter picking efforts are more than just asking volunteers to pick up litter. It’s an opportunity to educate and change poor behaviour for good.
If you would like to volunteer to join Kingswood Litter Pickers, please register your interest on our Facebook group where you will have access to a rotation of monthly village events and loan equipment:
You can also support us by following and sharing @CleanupTadworth Twitter/Instagram posts.
Now lockdown restrictions have been lifted, we can do group litter picks again (as long as we don’t go over 6). This presents a great opportunity to clean-up litter hot spots in the village en masse, meet like-minded neighbours, get some exercise, and enjoy the chance to socialise in one our local bars or cafes after an event.
With that in mind, we have organised a selection of picks throughout our villages on various days over Easter. Go to the Events tab on our Facebook page and choose a day and time that suits you. We would be delighted to have you there whichever day you can manage. Simply add your name and turn up on the day! If you have equipment then bring it with you. The organisers will have spares and purple bags too.
