There are LOTS of ways to be a local Street Champion!  Most councils will support you or local groups with litter pickers, bags, hoops, brooms, gloves etc. With five boroughs all meeting at Crystal Palace, it can be tricky to know where to start!  Many local groups already have shared equipment to help too.  Street Champions can…

  • Help create community gardens,
  • Clearing rubbish out of alley ways, litter-picking
  • Help build planters to prevent fly-tipping, greening local streets
  • Help organise community clean-ups and litter picks.
  • Help elderly neighbours tidy their front garden
  • Cutting back overgrown hedges
  • Do snow patrols to grit local paths
