Ravensthorpe litter picks

In 2013, Ravensthorpe Residents Action Group ran series of litter picking sessions, supported by funding from Dewsbury West Community First.

29 volunteers turned out for the first session to help clean up 3 children’s playgrounds in Ravensthorpe, as well as the ‘green corridor’ stretching from Clarkson Street through to Park Road. Together they collected 45 bin bags of litter.

Volunteers included young and old, families and single people, all of them caring enough about the place they live in to turn out and do something to show they care about how it looks.
