Join us - rediscover your community spirit, volunteer and make friends along the way - because together we can make a visible difference which benefits us all. Giving a little of your time is easy and volunteers go away feeling proud of their achievements, and are often thanked by passers-by. Recent new volunteers said they really enjoyed it and didn't want to stop Warning - it seems litter picking can be addictive!
