Fremington Parish Council has equipment and clothing available to borrow free for voluntary, school and community groups.
COMMUNITY groups and schools in Fremington, Lovacott, Instow and Westleigh are being urged to take advantage of a scheme that will transform them into ‘eco warriors’.
Fremington Parish Council has enough high visibility vests, litter pickers, bags and equipment to outfit a small army of volunteers and is keen for local people to make use of it.
The equipment is available for all manner of groups and organisations to borrow free from the council if they would like to stage community clean ups or litter picking events in their streets, playing fields, beaches and footpaths.
“We would really like to highlight that all this is here and available to borrow,” said Mr Cann.
“We are anxious to promote this scheme for the benefit of all four parishes, to get people involved in looking after their area and we know a number of voluntary groups are keen.
“The high vis vests are available in all sizes, so they are suitable for everyone from children through to adults.”
