Litter Pick-Up 2024

The Hatch End Litter Pick-Up is run jointly by 1st Hatch End Scout Group and the Hatch End AssociationPlease join us for the three dates in 2024.

DATES FOR 2024
The dates for next year are:
9 March

15 June
5 October

Our last litter pick- up was in October 2023 which was very successful with 26 adults and children attending and more than 26 bags of rubbish collected. What this space for the dates for 2024.

Details as follows:

  • 10am-12 noon – but you don’t have to come for 2 hours. If you can only make half an hour, it is still worth it.
  • Start outside 1st Hatch End Scout Group HQ, off the car park between Leeway Close and Grimsdyke Road (behind Kwik Fit), HA5 4JB
  • Collect a litter picker, gloves, a bag and tabard, or use your own equipment if you have it
  • Pick up litter wherever you like in the local Hatch End area
  • Return bags to designated place (TBC) for collection by Harrow Council
  • Refreshments are kindly offered by Fr David, vicar of St Anselm’s Church from 12 noon onwards at St Anselm’s Church, Westfield Park, Hatch End HA5 4JL

Please come and help – all are welcome. Help us keep Hatch End a pleasant place to live and work.

    We will try to make it. We regularly pick up litter in Hatch End because it is getting very filthy. The Broadway / Uxbridge Rd has regular street cleaning but not a deeper clean like many High streets. Hence the build up of cigarettes, broken glass etc. There are also real problems of excessive littering and no street cleaning on Grimsdyke Rd ( and flytipping behind the parade of shops), Uxbridge Rd on the railway bridge, Cornwall Rd, the area around the Arts Centre etc. Plus Morrisons carpark, especially the bushes, is horrendous. Bit of a rant, but it would be nice if the area had a more extensive system of street cleaning beyond the very limited service currently provided. It can’t just be left to volunteers. Compared to other parts of Europe, the litter problem here is remarkably bad.

      We acknowledge your comments on the litter in Hatch End. We will pass this on to our local councillor – Matthew Goodwin-Freeman.
