Caitlin and Lucy have been out over the last few weeks to clear litter in New Addington.  They are Year 11 students at Meridian High School. They both grew up and live in New Addington.

Caitlin says,

“As I’ve grown up I have noticed a change in the community atmosphere, as a result of this, I asked Lucy if she felt the same.  As we had a mutual agreement, we decided to make an impact. We hope that the wider community will join us and get involved.”

Caitlin and Lucy are planning to litter-pick again in New Addington on Monday, 15 October.  They’d love you to say hello if you see them or to join in.

Where should they focus their efforts?
We plan to advertise and promote future events, but Caitlin and Lucy are keen to hear from people about areas in New Addington that they would like targetted for litter picks.  Please email us or add a comment to this post and we’ll pass the request on. 

If you would like to help, please keep an eye out.

We will pass on details of future events and hope to post updates.
