Join us for the Autumn River Litter Clean Up

On Saturday 13 October, the River Clean-Up will be taking place once again and Love Your Chelmsford are inviting residents to come along and assist with a community clear up of the city centre riverbanks.

Part of the Love Your Chelmsford scheme, the event brings together volunteers, council staff and local groups to help look after the environment.

If you fancy getting stuck in, the team will be meeting at Baddow Road Car Park, Chelmsford, CM2 7PJ from 9.00am. Free parking and refreshments will be available, and the event will finish at 1.00pm.

All equipment will be provided: however volunteers are asked to wear sturdy footwear and suitable clothing. Everyone is welcome, although children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Whether you can join us all morning or for an hour, any help is much appreciated and will really make a difference to the local environment. If you would like to take part please email lyc@chelmsford.gov.uk.
