Recent CRS Events

On a Saturday 7th September, two teams of residents from Calthorpe Estate took to the streets on a mission to pick litter and tidy up their neighbourhood’s pavements, gutters and verges.
Team leader Pauline Owen said: “We appreciate that the Council can only do so much and that we citizens have a role to play as well if we want to keep our neighbourhood looking clean and beautiful.”
Equipped with litter-pickers, hi-viz jackets, gloves and refuse sacks provided by Birmingham City Council thanks to Edgbaston Ward Councillor Deirdre Alden, in just a couple of hours, the teams filled around 20 sacks full of litter, which was collected the next day by Council’s waste department.
Following the success of the event, CRS is now looking to buy a stock of litter-pickers and associated equipment that can be borrowed for free by members any time they wish to organize their own local litter pick.

CRS contributed to the success of Martineau Gardens Summer Garden Party by running the bar, collecting and washing glasses and clearing up.

Twenty CRS members volunteered, did a fantastic job and enjoyed themselves.

Special thanks to Jean Pratt who masterminded the washing up in a very hot kitchen on a scorching day.
