Like us, you can’t have failed to have been truly shocked and upset by the huge amount of litter and rubbish that was discarded across the Lake District and Cumbria last year as lockdown eased.
The people of Cumbria (and visitors who love the area too) are rightly proud and protective of this beautiful county and it has been the most incredibly heart-warming sight to see the reaction of so many individuals and local groups that have sprung up to take action for their local environment.
So this year’s Great Cumbrian Litter Pick is not only a chance to create a cleaner Cumbria but to:
- Provide a focus for raising awareness that the littering MUST STOP.
- Celebrate and say a massive thank you to the local people and groups who clean up out of the goodness of their hearts on a daily basis.
