Hovingham Litter Pick success!

Thank you to the Hovingham community for supporting this year's Litter Pick. We had a great turnout (24 people) including some children and the weather was kind to us. Many of our pickers commented it was great to be doing something again and it gave them positive feelings about their community.

Thank You to everyone, and see you next year, Ann. On behalf of the Hovingham Action Group and Project Purple

Coffee & cake rewards

A big thank you to Sally & Tony for hosting the Litter Pick and providing the much appreciated Coffee and Cake. 

30 sacks of litter

Our 30 sacks in Mark Wilson's farmyard awaiting collection by Ryedale Streetscene - so well worth doing.

A special thank you to Mark for collecting all the sacks and providing transport.

What's your Carbon Footprint? 


Curious to know more about your carbon footprint? See how it compares with the UK average of circa 10 tonnes Co2 p.a? You can check out your footprint using one of the links on our website  We have several carbon calculators to choose from. See how you compare and what simple things you can do to radically reduce your impact on the climate crisis in 2021. 

There's also this neat calculator to assess how much carbon you'll save by reusing different objects.

We cannot leave all the actions to Government and Businesses alone. Individuals and Communities have a key role to play in slowing climate change.
