Litter Pickers of North Bolton

Group Logo

This group was setup originally to improve the environment in Egerton, Eagley, Harwood and Bromley Cross, but we now cover any area of North Bolton.

We meet up to litterpick every Sunday morning from 9:00 - 10:30 am.

The group now numbers around 40 members, consisting of around 15 who meet up on Sundays, plus another 20 - 25 who are 'lone pickers' who clear specific areas, or pick up as they walk the dog, or walk around the area.

By the end of 2018 we expect to have collected more than 14,000 bags of litter since January 2017!!

Current total as at May 2018 is 8400!!

Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers

We meet Weekly on Sundays between 9.00am and 10.30am.

The Litter Pickers of North Bolton teamed up with Andy of Astley Bridge Litter Pickers and Connor of Johnson Fold Litter Pickers to litterpick Alders Lane, which runs from Thicketford Road to the industrial estate in Firwood.

These two dedicated litterpickers turn out with their owner on a regular basis, in all kinds of weather. What would we do without people (and dogs....) like you? Their names are Nemo and Alice, and they are great favourites with other members of the group. Unfortunately, their efforts at using the litter grabbers leave a lot to be desired, so their collection rates aren't the best.... However, their fantastic owner more than makes up for it!!
