Due to the success of previous litter picking campaigns, the Parish Council has decided to organise twice-yearly events. The first litter pick of 2017 will take place on Saturday 18th March. The second litter pick will be held late in Autumn and this date is yet to be confirmed. Details of both litter picks will be published on this website and through social media pages.
You may have seen the litter pickers from Amey in the village recently. Following numerous complaints to Daventry District Council by local residents, DDC sent litter pickers to the reported problem areas: Spratton Road (especially around the shops); The Slip; The Ashway; and the stretch of road leading out of the village by the cricket ground.
In general, litterbugs are far more likely to drop their rubbish in spots where there’s already litter around. We won’t stop them altogether, but we now have the opportunity to stop the ‘normalisation’ of litter in the village.
