Youth Climate Group Organises Henley September Clean

The Henley Youth Climate Group have joined up with the nationwide Keep Britain Tidy’s, Great British September Clean, starting tomorrow (11 September) until – 27 September and have organised a competition to win some great locally donated prizes.
They are asking you to go out for a walk with your family/friends in the woods, wander along the riverside with your partner, or take a solo stroll through town and pick up litter that’s been dropped. To be in with a chance of winning one of the great prizes in the prize draw, post a picture of your involvement on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, adding the hashtag #HenleySeptemberClean and make sure you like/follow Henley Youth Climate Group’s page of your choice on social media.  They are encouraging young children to dress up in your favourite superhero and be a Henley #LitterHero.  Entries closed at midnight on 28 September 2020.
The prizes include a 12 seat boat trip for half a day from Hobbs of Henley, two stonebaked pizzas and a bottle of wine from The Row Barge and a gift from Henley’s new sustainable store Wild and Rust.
In addition, the first 25 little pickers to upload their pictures to social media can get a free ice cream thanks to the Willow Basket in Friday Street.  Simply show your uploaded picture to Jane at the Willow Basket to claim your ice cream.
Please take your own bags out, one for non-recyclables and a transparent one for recyclables and wear gloves.  Dispose of your rubbish correctly at home.

The group will be creating a list of locations in and around Henley where you can tick off the areas you have covered so that we can make sure the whole area benefits. The event will be running over 17 days however, so feel free to revisit places already done! Please also add any locations you’ve covered which haven’t been included in the list.

Make sure to follow the advice on health and safety (poster below) to ensure you keep yourself and others safe.

If you can’t participate and would like to, you can donate to the cause instead. Simply send us proof of donation and we’ll enter you into the prize draw! –
