The Mossley Litter bugs group came about after a comment was made on Facebook that said ‘We all hate it, it bugs us all.’ Within 24 hours the Mossley Litter Bugs Facebook page was created and the following weekend their first litter pick took place.
Volunteer groups from all across the town turned up with litter pickers and gloves which were sourced from a local councillor and the group took to the streets. Picks have continued on a monthly basis, with more and more hearing about their good work and joining each time.
In the ten months since the group was formed, they have cleared a whopping five tonnes of litter.
If you want to help make Mossley nicer place, Join "Mossley Litter Bugs January clear up" at 11am on 24 January with meeting points at Raja’s in bottom Mossley and the market ground in top Mossley. The events are family friendly and are a fantastic way to keep fit in the fresh open air.
