10/03/15 Adopt a Street
Members of the Planning & Services Committee welcomed Karen Grisley, Horsham District Council's Adopt-a-Street Co-ordinator, to a recent meeting to hear about the Adopt-a-Street initiative which encourages residents to take extra care of their street or an area they particularly value by volunteering to pick up the litter left by others. The initiative has already recruited over 400 local volunteers in the last two months.

Commenting on the Adopt-a-Street scheme at it's recent launch event, Horsham District Coouncil Cabinet Member for the Environment Cllr Andrew Baldwin said: “As a council we spend in the region of £1 million a year picking up the litter dropped by members of the public. We know that as a district we are fortunate to have local communities who generally take pride in the appearance of their locality but for those who want to go the extra mile and take more care of a particular area, this scheme is ideal. It is commendable that we have recruited so many of the district’s residents who are willing to volunteer to litter pick on a regular basis, it sets a sound example to the community.”

To support volunteers, the council provides health and safety training, advice to co-ordinate volunteers and equipment in the form of litter pickers, plastic bags, protective gloves and branded hi-viz jackets.

If you would like to make a difference in your area or get a group of volunteers together, please email Horsham District Council at hopoast@horsham.gov.uk or alternatively, call the Adopt-a-Street Co-ordinator Karen Grisley for a chat about how you would like to help on 01403 739387 or 07989 442 376.
