After the success of our community litter picks last year – we’re bringing them back now that lockdown is starting to ease, and as always we’ll be following social distancing guidelines to make sure everyone stays safe!

We’ll be meeting outside The JQBID booth on The Big Peg on Golden Square each time to pick up our equipment – hi vis vests, litter pickers, bags and gloves provided, before heading over to the cemeteries. All equipment is cleaned before and after each session for your safety.

Saturday 24th April from 11am – 1pm – tidying both Cemeteries

Tuesday 4th May from 12noon – 1pm – tidying Key Hill Cemetery

We’ll be ensuring that social distancing guidelines are followed to keep everyone safe, and places are limited to avoid overcrowding. If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 please let us know so we can cancel your ticket. If you are travelling from outside the Jewellery Quarter please walk, cycle or use your own vehicle if possible.
