Scraptoft Community Litter Pick on Saturday 12th September 10am

Scraptoft Community Litter Pick on Saturday 12th September 10am

Scraptoft Parish Council is taking part in the Great British September Clean. Luckily we have a lot of good people in Scraptoft that have been litter picking over the lockdown period but we had to cancel the spring clean so we are taking part in the Keep Britain Tidy Event with a community litter pick.

It will start from Scraptoft Community Hub at 10 am on Saturday the 12th of September and equipment will be provided. We will be keeping to guidelines with regards to the lockdown. More »
