Clean sweep for Stonebridge thanks to Frome’s Litter Warriors

A group of local people have come together to tackle litter in the town. Over 20 volunteers took part in the first outing on the Stonebridge estate yesterday afternoon, collecting 19 bags of rubbish in just one hour.

The Litter Warriors include both young and old residents from all over Frome with a shared passion – keeping our streets clean. They plan to have regular litter picking events and are inviting more people to get involved.

Deputy Mayor, Mark Dorrington said “It’s great to see the community coming together to make a positive difference. Don’t forget we have free equipment available to borrow if you fancy organising your own litter pick with friends, family and neighbours.”

A local resident who took part said “I never knew litter picking could be such fun, there has been so much enthusiasm from everyone involved and I can’t wait for the next one.”

Local people showed their support for the litter pickers by joining in and even donating some chocolates to keep the teams energy levels up. If you would be interested in finding out more about the next litter pick, please add your email to our mailing list via this link: www.eepurl.com/gfyzhf

If there is an area of Frome that you would like the Litter Warriors to add to their list please email info@frometowncouncil.gov.uk
