Evesham Anti-Litter Group was formed as a result of the Litter Free Evesham campaign born of the Town Plan.
Led by Cllr Julie Tucker and Mr Bruce Taylor the group has been very successful in both educating businesses and residents about the affects of litter and in making a positive impact on ‘grot spots’ and the town in general with many many litter picks.  
Litter Free Evesham is being led by a committee of Evesham Town Council and involves Wychavon District Council and a number of other community groups within the town.
The aim is to make Evesham, in the main, a litter free town by changing public attitudes so littering becomes as anti-social as graffiti or vandalism.
The anti litter group has run awareness raising campaigns, identified grot spots and come up with solutions to tackle them. Visited schools and businesses to talk about the impact of litter and try and change behaviours.  They have worked with Wychavon District Council in getting additional bins installed and lobbied them to make reducing litter one of their priorities.  Perhaps most visibly they have organised many litter picks and collected hundreds of bags of rubbish.  
The public are being urged to play their part in the campaign by organising litter picks in their area and spreading the message about the damage littering causes.  The Town Council has a stock of litter picking equipment that it can lend to residents free of charge.  For more information contact the office on 01386 565700 or email.
Keep an eye out on the Litter Free Evesham Facebook page and twitter feed for up-to-date information.
