There is another chance to help make Chiswick even better this Sunday (22 August) by joining a group of litter pickers on Turnham Green.

They will be getting together this weekend by Christ Church from 2.30pm to 3.30pm.

The group will do a good sweep of the green and adjoining streets for an hour. Cake will be provided by Jill Spencer the Environmental Champion for Turnham Green.

The initiative now accounts for hundreds of local volunteers who have turned out regularly on the 4th Sunday to contribute an hour of their time.

At this same time other groups of activists carrying out their own litter picks across Chiswick. But the main base has remained at Turnham Green.

Individual wishing to start their own litter picks in their local area are encouraged to do so. They simply have to get in touch with any of the Chiswick councillors to organise bin bags to be delivered to a location by Hounslow Highways. Further instruction for reporting fly tipping, disposing of litter and handling hazardous materials can be passed on.

Cllr Ron Mushiso commented on the successes of the of the initiative so far, “Cleanliness attracts cleanliness and that’s the message that we should all pass on to our families, friends, and neighbours. Every action such as putting our rubbish in the bin, picking litter or taking our litter home; has an impact not only on the environment but also helps prevent other forms of antisocial behaviour. Our volunteers, therefore are a big piece of the jigsaw when it comes to establishing safer neighbourhoods.”
