Pride in Your Patch is a partnership project that helps residents make a difference to their communities.
We can help you spruce up your area offering expert advice, equipment and assistance on:
• litter picking
• fly-tipping removal
• graffiti removal
• painting and general sprucing up
• strimming and weed clearance
• making your space more wildlife friendly
You can volunteer as an individual or a group and do as much or as little as you like. You can also earn time credits for volunteering.
We work to support volunteers, community groups, registered charities, and not-for-profit organisations to clean up areas of public land.
