Existing litter picking groups

Two people who are part of a litter picking group, using a litter picker to put litter into a bin bag.

We also have some existing litter picking groups across Cheltenham if you fancy joining likeminded folk for a spot of litter picking, rather than organising a litter pick yourself.
