22nd March until 13th April GBSC was cancelled due to the pandemic and rescheduled to 11th – 27th September. This campaign seen over 250 children from Wyre Forest scouting and Girl Guide district take part earning them their Keep Britain Tidy badge reward.
The children collected 47 bags of litter from community streets, nature reserves and parks. The children’s efforts seen them featured in the daily mail story about the Keep Britain Tidy Campaign.
Chloe your Junior Pickup Artist ambassador also launched her yellow kids litter bags to show the community adults that children had litter picked their areas.
Parents can also pick up a role of bags from us and join in the challenge to beat last year’s total. A prize for the greatest number of bags filled individually will be given out to the child winner.

We are looking for local sponsors to help towards the litter picking equipment and high visibility jackets.
