What's on

Our irreverently named Weekly Witterings is our attempt to keep volunteers and supporters up to date with forthcoming events.  In these uprecedented times we are all staying at home but that doesn’t mean we’ve given up!  Come the end of the lockdown we’ll be back with renewed energy ready to bring our gardens back and clear the litter.  Why not sign up now and we’ll keep you up to date weekly via our Find Yourself in a Garden section as well as more general news here.

A Weekly Wildlife Wittering

Dear Civic Pride, Hope that everyone remains in good health. In last week’s Witterings I asked for your thoughts on litter during the continuing lockdown. From the excellent responses (thank you!) it is apparent there is a mix of positive and negative. With the population unable to socialise, less litter is gathering in the usual […]
