Dear Wombles
Latest update below:
Riverside Walk/Litter Pick – 10am Friday 16 March
Meeting in the gravel car park by the Lock keeper.  As well as picking up litter, this is an opportunity to meet a group of artists who will be visiting Keynsham.  Their aim is to find ways they can work with community groups in Keynsham as they are planning a year long project here in the future.  I have loads of ideas where we could create art projects around litter, but I’m sure you will have great ideas too, so please come along if you can.
Do bring your own litter picking equipment if you have it, otherwise you will be welcome to borrow as usual.
Sunday, 25 March, 2-4pm Keep Britain Tidy’s Nationwide Litter Pick
This is the new date for our Keynsham wide litter pick which was previously cancelled due to the snow.  We will be meeting at 2pm at the various points across Keynsham, then finishing at the Bowl’s Club in the park for tea at 4pm.  
Currently the start points are:
Keynsham Beavers meeting at the allotments, led by Angela
Dapps Hill Bridge, led by Roger
Dunster Road where it meets Park Road, led by Kai
Gravel Car Park by Lock Keeper pub, led by Erica
Do let me know if you would like to join one of these groups, or if there is another area which you would be happy to litter pick.
If you need to borrow litter picking equipment please let me know in advance so I can make sure your group leader has enough to lend you on the day.

Take a stand against plastic packaging!
This isn’t a Keynsham Wombles event, but has been organised by various Keynsham people (including a few Wombles).  The purpose is to highlight the environmental damage and disposal costs of plastic packaging. They are meeting at Tesco in Keynsham at 4pm on 24 March and plan to do a short shop, pay for their purchases and take off the packaging, leaving it in the store. Tesco’s have been informed that this will be happening. Anyone is welcome to join in if they wish.
Many thanks and hoping to see you soon
Erica
