Lockdown litter pickers

Share this article

In March two West Thamesmead residents noticed lots of litter while taking their regular exercise. They started a Facebook group, printed some posters and Tidy West Thamesmead was born!

From those humble beginnings TWT has grown to more than 160 members and spawned three more local Facebook Groups: the Royal Arsenal 5K Clean Up, Tidy South Thamesmead and Tidy North Thamesmead.


Mark Pickering, Chair of the West Thamesmead Community Association, said: “TWT and the other groups regularly get together to remove litter and trim back overgrowth. Why not join us in helping to make Thamesmead a neater, tidier, more pleasant place for us all to live in.”

Anyone interested in joining any of the groups can find their details on Facebook.
