Surrey Heath CF Social Action project
On Saturday 30th June, a group of nine young people from Surrey Heath Conservative Future met together in Camberley town centre to pick up litter as part of Social Action. The group of volunteers, ably assisted by two additional helpers, felt strongly about helping the local community and the environment.
The litter pick was split into three routes so that volunteers could cover a wider area. After an hour and a half of clearing the streets of old cans and discarded bottles, they arrived at the finish, where they enjoyed refreshments, with eight full bags of litter, which made a huge difference. Also, they were able to identify areas in Camberley which need special attention and they plan to inform the council of them. They are now looking for future opportunities to help the environment and engage with the local community.
Chairman of Conservative Future in Surrey Heath, Paloma Vince, said: “I am delighted that everyone could participate and come together in this way to help the community. This really shows the great impact that people can have when they work together. I hope that we will be able to repeat this event in future, working more closely with local residents. This event was a real success!”
