Round the Harbour Clean Up – 6th June 2015

Who is this for?

Graham Smith from Lee Litter Action Group who has been inspired by a similar event held in Sydney, Australia (and which was supported by thousands of volunteers) is organising a Round the Harbour Clean Up event under the banner of ‘Love Where You Live’.


Graham has persuaded local volunteer groups, businesses and schools as well as MP Caroline Dinenage to join the campaign in tackling this never ending scourge to our environment and The Friends of Stokes Bay will be working alongside Graham and his colleagues to promote what we feel is a really worthwhile project.


They are endeavouring to encourage communities who surround Portsmouth Harbour to come together and tackle local litter problems.


Hopefully this event will help to raise awareness and encourage communities to continue with their own litter clean ups in the future, such as the Friends of Stokes Bay have been doing for many years.


Love Where You Live believe that this initiative could well become a fun annual event, encouraging all age groups in local neighbourhoods to come together, to look after and be proud of where they live!


Their aim is to spread the word to residents in Portsmouth, Portchester and Fareham and encourage them to join with Gosport and Lee on Solent on 6th June and be a force to be reckoned with in the battle against the blight of litter.


Friends of Stokes Bay will be starting their event at 10am at the Splash Pool, Stokes Bay, Hampshire on Saturday 6 June 2015.  Love Where You Live are planning lots of events for 6th June and to find out more please go to:
