Residents of Bradley Stoke have two opportunities to get involved in improving the local environment over the coming weekend.
Saturday (10th October) sees the Big Clean Up, an end of summer clear up in Bradley Stoke and the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve.
Volunteers are asked to meet at 10am at the Jubilee Centre, Savages Wood Road, BS32 8HL [map].
Litter picking equipment will be provided but helpers are asked to wear sensible clothes and footwear.
Children are welcome, provided they are supervised by a parent or guardian.
The event is organised by the Bradley Stoke Street Carers, headed by Dave Dace, the Town Council’s ‘Mobile Cleansing Operative’ (MCO).
Dave, who took up his MCO post in April, is so passionate about keeping Bradley Stoke clean that he has published a poem about his litter picking activities in the town.
He has also recently founded a Bradley Stoke Litter Action Group, for which he hopes to recruit more members at the weekend.
On Sunday (11th October), the Friends of Jubilee Green are organising an Autumn Planting event.
The group says it has 1200 wildflower plug plants and 1000 bulbs to plant under the trees that run along Savages Wood Road, on the edge of the Jubilee Green.
Volunteers are being asked to “bring a trowel and join in the muddy fun”.
Free refreshments will be available from a room at the Jubilee Centre.
The event starts at 3pm. More information on the Friends’ website.
