Litter Free Lewes  Regular litter picking group - next date 21/07/2018 ๐Ÿšฎ Joining forces with other community groups and schools to help prevent littering ๐Ÿ’š

It was great to be part of the Landport BBQ this eve, it was proper old school fun! We met some of the Neighbourhood First crew; let them know if you have any local issues using the Report It app. We also helped clear up a little, the kids were great at binning their litter, and some of the adults were OK too ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks to Lucia for manning the stall and Simon who sperated nearly all the recycling from the general waste - not a pretty job! Looking forward to our next Landport litter pick... Coming soon, watch this space! #litterfreelewes #landport #volunteer #volunteers #bbq #summertime #goodtimes #families #lewes #fun

๐Ÿšฎ BIG THANKS ๐Ÿšฎ to our super volunteers who had another go at Ham Lane last Saturday in the searing heat! They collected 10 bags of litter, a bag of glass recycling and a load of fly tipping! Further thanks go to Friends of Lewes who have sponsored our vests. This will hopefully make our efforts more visible and encourage new recruits when we're out and about. Join us for our next pick at the Kings Church in Lewes, 9.45am, Saturday 21st, then we'll be loitering at the Skatepark for the Skate Jam ๐Ÿ˜Ž #lewes #litterpicking #litterfreelewes #volunteer #volunteers #skatepark #lewesskatepark #skatejam #community #communityspirit #getinvolved #friendsoflewes

Best before 2007!!! 11 years floating around, polluting our environment until we picked it up a few weeks ago. Join Litter Free Lewes on Ham Lane again this Saturday 14th, 4pm meet at the dump and continue our efforts to clean this place up. Not going to lie, we do still eat crisps occasionally, but we're fully aware that it's a bad choice for us and the environment, we're trying to quit...and the packet definitely ends up in a bin. Help us by binning your litter and picking it up when you see it if you have a few seconds to spare ๐Ÿ’š #bestbefore #litterpicking #litterfreelewes #lewes #volunteers #volunteer #communityspirit #getinvolved #keepbritaintidy #noplanetb @walkers_crisps any plans on changing your packaging soon? #walkers #snacks #fastfood #crisps

Thank you to ALL the Ouseday volunteers, not just those from Litter Free Lewes, for collecting this mound of rubbish! Thanks also to the public who seemed to have left the rec pretty tidy ๐Ÿ˜Š It was great to have Sam and Eddie (in the pic) join us for the first time too as part if their D of E awards. LFL added another 7 bags to this pile! Happy Ouseday... See you next on the 21st for a collaboration with the @lewesskatepark ๐Ÿšฎ ๐ŸŒ ๐Ÿ’š #volunteer #litterfreelewes #dukeofedinburgh #ouseday #lewes

It's really depressing to be able to stand still in the woods and pick up this much litter for minutes on end. If you haven't been there yet, this is what the woodland between the A27 and Ham Lane looks like, all over. This is why we need a lot of volunteers and repeated visits to get this place cleaned up and returned to nature. The sad thing is, this isn't the only place in the UK, or the world, like this. Please give our environment a chance and pick up litter when you see it if you have a minute to spare. The good news is, we have fantastic volunteers and I'm sure you could too if you fancy starting a group like ours near you. Let's get the planet cleaned up for us, the next generation and our delicate ecosystem. Please share this post if you'd like to highlight our global litter crisis ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒ ๐Ÿšฎ #litterpicking #nature #thereisnoplanetB

โœจ MANY THANKS โœจ to our small but enthusiastic team of volunteers today; Kirsten, Audrey, Nigel, Marcus, Sam! (and little old me) We collected 13 huge bags of litter, 1 bag of recycling, 2 tyres and the top of a car carrier from Ham Lane. The sheer volume in the woods is completely overwhelming. We need many more visits, and your help, to make an even bigger impact in the future. See you tomorrow, 5pm at Wiley's Bridge, for a post Ouseday clear up ๐Ÿ’ฆ #hamlane #litterfreelewes #litterpicking #volunteer #communityspirit #nature #reduce #reuse #refuseplastic #lewes #eastsussex #thankyou

We're so shocked that people are STILL using single use coffee cups!!! They're SO wasteful and SO easily replaced with ONE reusable cup... They also don't disappear if you drop them or chuck them out the car window. This collection from @mcdonalds @costacoffee and @starbucks plus a miscellaneous polystyrene one and an assortment of lids were found around the Wallands/Nevil area last week. It's time for a change people!!! #coffee #ecocup #cups #takeaway #mcdonalds #litter #litterbugs #waste #wastereduction #nature #reduce #recuse #recycle #litterpicking #litterfreelewes #pickitup #costa #starbucks #katy

๐ŸŒŸA GREAT BIG THANK YOU ๐ŸŒŸ to all our volunteers today both little and not so little ๐Ÿ˜Š A great turn out for our Wallands special litter pick.

We separated one bag of clean recycling โ™ป Come and join us for our pick in Ham Lane, next Saturday. #wallandsschool #wallands #lewes #litterpicking #litterfreelewes #volunteer #communityspirit #volunteers #getinvolved #tidyup #pickitup #reduce #recycle #reuse

Thank you so much to our lovely volunteers Nick, Audrey and Lucia who volunteered and manned the stall at the Wallands School fete on 9th June. Hopefully they recruited a few more volunteers! #wallandsschool #friendsofwallands #lewes #volunteer #volunteers #getinvolved #litterpicking

๐ŸŒทMANY THANKS to our volunteers from Kingston (at least 4) and Lewes (5 of us) and to the drivers who didn't squash us ๐Ÿ’š while picking Brighton Road today. No group photo, here's our stash of 18+ bags of litter and all other sorts of disgusting junk! Next pick, Landport on 20th May, see you there! #litterfreelewes #kingston #eastsussex #litterpicking #volunteer #getinvolved #communityspirit #thankyou
