Litter Pick

This programme is due for relaunch in 2022 / 23 following COVID / lockdown.

Previously:15 King's School pupil volunteers joined forces with volunteers from the Canterbury community for one of the biggest litter picks and clean ups that the city has ever seen.

The clean-up was organised by the Friends of Kingsmead Field and was the first in a series of community litter picks taking place around the city during the Great British Spring Clean, a nationwide clean-up which is coordinated each year by Keep Britain Tidy.
