The Spring litter pick has been rescheduled to take place on Saturday 22nd May. If you would like to take part, please come down to the old telephone exchange next to the Community Centre in Brook End between 10 am and 2 pm. All litter pickers, rubbish bags, hi-vis vests and route to follow will be provided. Please bring your own gloves.
The aim of the Potton litter pick is for community to come together, clean up the local environment and have fun, which of course means staying safe at all times.
Litter-picking can be carried out alone, in pairs or small groups of up to a maximum of six, based on the current government guidance for meeting with people outside of your household.
Current Step 3 (not before 17th May) guidance on Social Contact advises:
“As part of Step 3, no earlier than 17 May, the government will look to continue easing limits on seeing friends and family wherever possible, allowing people to decide on the appropriate level of risk for their circumstances.
This means that most legal restrictions on meeting others outdoors will be lifted – although gatherings of over 30 people will remain illegal. Indoors, the Rule of 6 or 2 households will apply – we will keep under review whether it is safe to increase this.
As soon as possible and by no later than Step 3, we will also update the advice on social distancing between friends and family, including hugging. But until this point, people should continue to keep their distance from anyone not in their household or support bubble.”
You may have to queue slightly longer than normal when collecting and returning equipment to allow for social distancing.
