Volunteers from the Three Bridges Forum collected 20 bags of rubbish during their latest litter pick earlier this month.

The forum works with their Crawley Borough Council and the community to ‘make the place look brighter’ by organising litter picks in their area.

Mary Grace, a member of the Three Bridges Forum, said they had help from people young and old and have regular help from a local Brownies group.

On August 8 they managed to collect a total of 20 full bags of rubbish from their local area in their latest litter pick.

The forum primarily focused on areas with high amounts of litter such as Three Bridges Train station, Jubilee Field and the local police station, where a large amount of litter was found.

The council provided them with the bags and high visibility jackets for their litter picks.

Other recent work by the forum has included organising parking permits and they have worked to protect grass patches from cars being parked on them.

They have also taken notice of the declining number of trees in the area, which Mary explained is something the group feels very concerned about.

This was the last planned litter pick of the year for the forum. There will be an AGM in early autumn to discuss future ways the group can look after Three Bridges and continue positively impact the community.
