Community litter pick in Oldfield Park

Students from the University of Bath will be taking part in a community litter pick in Oldfield Park in the city on Sunday 13 December .

It is being organised by June Player, Chairperson of the On-Board Community Project, which has adopted Oldfield Park Station.

The litter pick is also being supported by Oldfield Park Infant's School, Hayesfield School and Moorland Road Baptist Church Pre-school and Bath & North East Somerset Council.

Daniel O'Toole, president of the Students' Union said: "We support the On-Board Community Project and will be joining local community members in a drive to clear-up the area."

June Player, Chairperson of the On-Board Community Project, said: "Our area has become really disgusting looking with so much rubbish, lots of wet cardboard, ripped open flimsy bags left out for days on end and horrible food leftovers strewn about.

"It is depressing to walk by and look out onto and hardly sets a good example to all the school children that pass by this area constantly. They will grow up to believe that this is 'the norm.' It is wrong and very short-sighted for these conditions to be tolerated."

The litter pick will take place between 11am till 1:30pm.

For general enquiries about the event, please contact Daniel O'Toole, Students' Union President on 01225 383073 or June Player, event organiser, on 01225 341904.
