July - Chalvey Action Week and Kedermister Park
But first, what happened in June?
We went litter picking in Kennedy Park with 12 amazing volunteers!
We filled 25 bags in 1.5 hours. A lot of litter was scattered around, partly because of the beautiful weather on the previous days.
We found a park sign and returned it to the council to be reused. An unearthed basketball now has a new owner, but the children’s plastic chairs weren’t salvageable.
It made us realise that there is much more to be done to make Slough more litter aware. Other activities are planned, all funding and volunteers depending, so if you want to be involved in any other way than litter picking, send us an email!
Chalvey Action Week 2 – 8 July
Next week is Chalvey Action week! Chalvey Community Partnership will organise all sorts of activities.
There are also some litter picks planned:
On Monday 4 July, there will be a litter pick in Chalvey Road West from 5.30 pm – 6.30 pm
On Wednesday 6 July, there will be a litter pick in Chalvey Road East from 7 pm – 8 pm
For the complete plan, see the schedule below and the website of the partnership
Kedermister Park litter pick on 17 July

There is a carpark in the park, which is next to the guide hut.
