Community Clean Ups

The Clean, Safe & Green Team help residents and community groups across the Borough to organise clean ups which improve the look of local areas and increases the community spirit within an area. We provide all the equipment needed for a clean-up and will remove all the litter once collected.

 

Community Clean Up Campaigns 2017/18

The Community Volunteering Team will continue to support wards and villages who would like to hold a community litter pick. Where possible we will encourage someone to take on the running of the event themselves whether it is a resident, parish clerk/councillor or ward councillor.

 

In 2017 we supported 95 community litter pick events

Volunteers collected 1174 bags of rubbish 

 6295 hours of volunteering were recorded in parks and open spaces

Rivercare 2018

Saturday 21st April, 10am

 

Rivercare is a community event which gives the river & Embankment area a complete clean by having teams of local groups and members of the public litter picking in and around the river.

Anyone can take part and the more the merrier!

You can watch the scuba divers from Bedford Scuba Diving Club and Bedford Sub Aqua Club pull out the numerous trolleys, bicycles, traffic cones and other dumped items that get discarded in the river daily. We have also built partnerships with The John Bunyan Boat who provide refreshments for all volunteers taking part.

 

More details on the 2018 event to follow in the New Year.
