Leigh-on-Sea Town Council are excited to announce a new community initiative in Leigh; the councillors will be hosting monthly litter picks around the town with the support of Make Southend Sparkle.
Your local Town Councillors will be meeting across Leigh for regular litter picks to tidy up our streets. The picks will take place on the last Sunday of the month, in problem litter areas around the town.
We will also be holding regular polls through our Facebook page @leighTCevents to determine where to do our next litter picks So you can choose where you want us to tidy up!
It is hoped that the project will not only be of a huge benefit to the local wildlife, but will also give councillors the chance to engage with the community on a 1-2-1 level.
Anyone is welcome to join in with the picks and make a difference in their community. If you would like to join in, please get in touch by either calling 01702 716288 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The first pick will be taking place around the Old Town on Sunday 29th August, 8.30am - 10.30am, meeting at Strand Wharf, Old Leigh.
All equipment and training is provided through Make Southend Sparkle.
