Breckland Community Shed
An innovative project has been launched by Breckland Council, in partnership with a number of the district's town-based organisations, aimed at helping tackle littering across Breckland.
The Breckland Community Shed Network will provide local residents, schools and voluntary community groups within the district access to litter pick equipment and basic gardening tools, which they can use free of charge to clean up their local area. Each market town within Breckland is hosting and managing their own shed, making it easier and more convenient for volunteers to borrow equipment, regardless of where they live.
The project is being funded through the central government 'High Street Clean Up Fund' and will see Community Sheds managed by Swaffham's Iceni Partnership, The Connaught Hall in Attleborough, the town councils in Watton and Thetford, and in Dereham by Breckland Council.
Want to join an existing clean up group? Join the Trash Tribe volunteers of Pure Clean Earth in Attleborough or Dereham (Facebook group: Pure Clean Earth - Norfolk) or check with your Parish Council for details of litter picking groups in your village.
