Litter Picking

Litter seems to be a perennial problem in our modern society. Our Mission Action Plan confirmed that this was a major concern among members of our congregations. As people who care for God's creation and the environment within which we and our neighbours live, we have decided to try to tackle the litter despoiling our streets.

With the assistance and support of Bolton Green Umbrella, and alongside other Litter Picking groups throughout Bolton, we formed a group called the Litter Pickers of Tonge Moor, and are working closely with another local group with (unbeknownst to us at the time) the same name. The Litter Pickers of Tonge Moor's Facebook page can be viewed here.

We try to visit some part of the parish on the 1st Saturday of the month, meeting after the 10.30am mass, although this may vary from time to time to avoid clashes with other immovable events. Please check with the weekly mass sheet. Members of the congregation are welcome to borrow equipment to litter pick at other times, too.

You are welcome to join us on any of our Litter Picking events.
