    The Great British Spring clean Litter pick

    Sat, April 9, 2022
    2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


    Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Leisure Centre, Leicester

    Hello fellow geeks! it’s that time of year again! Time for an in person event and good deed for the planet!

    With the help of the South Leicestershire Litter Wombles https://www.facebook.com/groups/604107836721038/?ref=share we’ll be taking part in The Great British Spring clean. Litter picking is a great activity to do your bit for the wildlife and planet, great exercise and a chance to catch up with people after this tough time. So join us and lets show the Wombles and the world we care too!
    Starting location will be outside the Queen Elizabeth Sports centre 50 Duns Ln, Leicester LE3 5LX 2pm (what 3 words: ///asks.taker.frogs) and we’ll pick the surrounding area or walk the canal towards Abbey Park or split into teams and do both depending on the day. This event is open to all. Any one interested in doing their bit, friends, family, colleagues… if you can’t make ours there’s loads around the country and city. Check out the Womble group for more.
    Any questions message the captain or bridge crew info@starbaseleicester.co.uk
    Also a chance to earn another event towards your Golden Club Badge.
    Important bits:
    • Event will be open to non members too
    • All children MUST be accompanied by adults and if the the canal is chosen you will be especially responsible for your childs safety. We take no responsibility for juniors.
    • Some equipment will be provided but if you have your own litter picker/bags/gloves/hi-viz please bring them along
    • Bring your own hand sanitizer
    • We will keep groups small, and remain socially distanced (and obviously be outside)
    • it’s after lunch so remember to fuel up!
