The Litter Pickers of Johnson Fold are hosting a ‘litter pick and treat’ event, in partnership with Bolton at Home, on Saturday 27th October from 12 to 4pm.
There will be a variety of stalls plus music and games at the UCAN centre in Johnson Fold Avenue, and Hallowe’en fancy dress litter picks (with treat stops) leaving the UCAN centre every hour.(1, 2 and 3pm). Holland’s Pies will kindly be donating snacks for the event.
The Litter Pickers of Johnson Fold was set up in March 2017, following a ‘clean-up’ day on the estate, organised by Bolton Live. The community project won a ‘Highly Commended’ award at Bolton at Home’s annual ‘Stars of the Community’ awards night. They now work in cooperation with other groups in the area, not only collecting litter, but also running education programs. They have also been involved in a number of campaigns, in association with Bolton Council and Bolton at Home, including rewarding ‘Community Litter Champions’ who strive to keep Johnson Fold estate tidy, a 20mph sticker campaign and a drinks can recycling initiative.
