Now everyone can help to keep our green spaces litter free

We have all seen the shocking images of litter collecting in our parks and countryside after lockdown restrictions eased recently. Depressing and upsetting isn’t it?

Now you can do something about this and spend a couple of minutes clearing up as part of your visit. We are very proud to have set up #2minute Litterpick Stations at popular Somerset beauty spots.  The boards are equipped with litterpickers and reusable bags for anyone to borrow and do their own #2minute clean up.  You can find our stations at Watchet Visitor Centre outside the Ninesprings Café at Yeovil Country Park and in one of the two car parks at Chard Reservoir,

Watchet Visitor Centre and South Somerset District Council will act as guardians for these three stations. We are very grateful for their cooperation in this exciting new venture.  Thankyou to everyone who donated to our fundraising appeal to buy special sanitiser units for these stations. Thanks also to Somerset Wildlife Trust’s Brilliant Coast Project and South Somerset District Council for their contribution.

We will be delivering two more stations elsewhere soon so look out for more news on those in the next few weeks. They will join over 800 similar stations around the UK, coordinated by the 2minute foundation – a charity dedicated to cleaning up our planet 2 minutes at a time.

If you are visiting any of these places, why not do a #2minute litterpick, don’t forget to take a photo and post it on social media using the hashtag #2minutelitterpick.
