The annual spring RESCUE (Rivers and Environmental Spaces Clean Up Event), which is organised by Reading Borough Council and supported by many groups and organisations across the borough, is due to take place from Thursday to Sunday 21 to 24 March. Caversham GLOBE will once again be organising clean up activities in our area. We welcome residents to come along and help with these activities. Litter picking tools and sacks are provided by the Council. See some pictures in our Gallery pages for the astonishing amount of unsightly and often hazardous litter and fly tipping that inconsiderate people have left in Caversham’s open spaces and watercourses. If you think you may be available to help with a couple of hours litter picking for this campaign, please see our “contacts” page.
Our Diary Page has now been updated with details of the events being co-ordinated by Caversham GLOBE on Friday 22 March and Saturday 23 March. All help would be welcome at these events.
UPDATE 23 March: Thanks to all who helped out with the cleanup at Thames Prom on Friday 22 March, a huge amount of litter and flytipped rubbish was collected. Unfortunatley our cleanup on 23 March has been cancelled becasue of the bad weather, but will be rearranged as soon as possible.
