The Litter Partnership in Winchester aims to bring together local people, councils, schools, businesses and military personnel to tackle the scourge of litter. Founded by Tom Bristowe, a LitterHero Ambassador of Keep Britain Tidy, we are supported by Winchester City Council and CPRE – the countryside charity; and we work closely with idverde, Winchester’s street scene contractor.

Thanks to the work of the Litter Partnership, ten villages in the district now have volunteer litter-picking groups clearing not only their only villages but also the roads, lanes and public spaces between them – all ably supported by CPRE and idverde. Volunteers from various organisations, including the University of Winchester and the Army Training Regiment, are also helping the cause, tidying up around the perimeters of their properties. The Scouts are doing their bit too!

Given our exciting growth, we are now seeking a volunteer to lead our communications. In particular, this person would manage and develop our website and Facebook page, as well as our relationships with media outlets. Below are recent press releases and articles about our work, plus a BBC Radio Solent interview with Tom Bristowe.If you are interested in this opportunity and the experience it would give you, please email for more information.
