Last Saturday we joined forces with our local community, and to help make Alton cleaner. Thank you for a great initiative! We were the only corporate company to ever help out, so shout out to all local businesses to join us for Spring Litter Pick! ✊

Nearly 50 volunteers turned out for the Litter pick. Thanks to all who came including the 3rd Alton Scouts and a local company called Jisp. Well done to Alton Town council who provided the equipment & cleared away the rubbish. Main problem? Ciggy butts! Pictures of Helpers

Update: at present despite the weather forecast of rain we intend to have our litter pick on Saturday 26 October at 10am. We anticipate showers and then dry spells. However it would be a good idea to be prepared for some rain.

Why not send out your staff and collect all the abandoned Sainsbury’s trolleys littering our lovely town?

1. Proven technology exists. 2. The public want to . 3. We know how to use DRS. 4. Why must we wait until 2023 before DRS introduced in England?

16 volunteers including our own Friends of Flood Meadows did a fantastic job in helping to build a new embankment for the river by the Lenten St end of the meadows. Well done especially to Martin Gibbs who organised it. A before and after picture for you.

Martin Gibbs has won our award for outstanding services to Alton for 2019. He has run our Friends of Flood Meadows Working Party sessions since 2007. They help build and repair paths, clear litter, dig out vegetation from the area. Martin was surprised and humbled to be chosen.
