On Saturday 24th March 2018, 10 volunteers of the Leicester Rapid Relief Team together with Leicester Forest East Parish Council Cllr Paul Fox, filled 20 bags of rubbish picked up off the streets of Leicester Forest East.
Covering the entire parish from Beggars Lane up to Braunstone Lane RRT volunteers walked the streets of Leicester Forest East for 2 hours with their bright red bags, picking up anything that didn’t belong on the streets.
This litter pick was organised by the RRT as part of the Great British Spring Clean – a nationwide campaign run by Keep Britain Tidy to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and coastlines.
Brian Fear, RRT Team Leader for this event said “It was great to be involved in this litter pick, and to contribute towards tidying up the streets of Leicester Forest East. It has been a pleasure working with the Parish Council and we’re looking forward to continuing to work with them on future community projects.”
In 2017, RRT Leicester donated a defibrillator to Leicester Forest East Parish Council which is now mounted to the wall of the Parish Hall on Kings Drive.
