POSTPONED until September

The 6th Ashbys Big Tidy Up

Volunteers from last years Big Tidy Up

Anyone can volunteer to help, you don’t have to live in Ashby and you don’t need any previous experience. Youngsters under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult.

Please try to register as soon as you can so that we can ensure all locations are adequately covered whilst none have an excess number of volunteers.

Please note it may be necessary to limit the number of volunteers starting at any one location to avoid overcrowding and to ensure the whole town and surrounding area is adequately covered.

Litter Pickers - please register via Eventbrite link

Any age, no experience needed, picking litter at various locations throughout Ashby.

Lead Litter Picker - please register via Eventbrite link

Experienced litter pickers who are willing to lead a team of less experienced litter pickers of all ages.

Bake & Donate - please call 07591 494727 or email

If you’d like to bake and donate (or buy & donate) a cake or biscuits for the volunteers please let us know.

Why volunteer?

  • It’s enjoyable – you’ll get outside in the fresh air and meet other local people
  • Make a difference – you’ll see the effects and want to keep it looking good
  • Prevent further littering – it’s a fact that people are less likely to litter in a clean area (and they feel safer)

Ashbys Big Tidy Up 2020 Starts from 10 locations around Ashby ending with refreshment at Hood Park Leisure Centre Sports Hall between 2pm and 4.30pm
