First major Going for Gold event this weekend
Published 03/04/14



Henley in Bloom’s Hit Litter event will take place on Saturday.

The annual litter-pick is the first major initiative as the town gears up for the national Britain in Bloom competition, supported by a new Henley Standard campaign called Going for Gold. Volunteers are asked to meet at Christ Church in Reading Road at 10am for a 10.30am start. They will be given equipment and a map of the area they will be tidying.

Biffa will provide hi-vis vests, litter-pickers and bin bags on behalf of South Oxfordshire District Council and will take away the rubbish that is collected.

Councillor Kellie Hinton, who chairs the Henley in Bloom organising committee, said: “We will provide soup and refreshments afterwards to say thank you and to bring people together for a chat.”

She said the areas particularly in need of a clean-up were Deanfield Road, Mill Meadows, Northfield End, Fair Mile and the station car park.

Cllr Hinton said: “We will cover every street in town and do as many streets as possible on the outskirts.”

There will also be a litter-pick at Makins recreation ground run by the Gainsborough Residents Association. Housing association Soha will provide a skip, which will be on site from 7.30am.

Last year, Henley won silver gilt in the town category of the Royal Horticultural Society competition, falling just two points short of gold.
