Community Litter Pick, from Beechenhurst

Saturday 28th March

Please join in with our next Community Litter Pick to help keep the Forest of Dean clean, as a part of the local Love Your Forest campaign and The Great British Spring Clean 2020!

We will meet at Forestry England’s Beechenhurst site.  Please park in the section of the car park that is closest to the road, which is all the way around the site and on the way towards the exit, as that is where we will be gathering.  We will set off from there to clear up the local woodland between Beechenhurst and the Speech House Hotel.

Please wear sturdy footwear, gloves and dress for the weather. We will provide litter pickers (we have adult and child sized) and bags.

All welcome. This is a family friendly event (under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult).

Together we can keep our Forest clean!
