We have been informed that there will be a trial community litter pick in Llanbadarn fawr on Saturday 9th May 2009 at 10.30am, meeting at the village square (opposite the Black Lion pub).
If you want to join in turn up with a pair of gloves and a bin bag! It is not expected to take more than an hour. Community litter picks can be fun, social occasions: and they encourage people to take pride in, and ownership of, their local community areas. Raising the issue of litter may also help to discourage people from dropping it.
Depending on the number of volunteers who show up it is proposed that small groups will split off to go to different areas of Llanbadarn Fawr.
