The Litter Partnership in Winchester is proud to announce three exciting new initiatives for 2021.

First, our friends and partners at idverde will be launching a flexible litter-pick support service for volunteers wishing to keep rural roads near their homes free of litter. If you are frustrated by litter on a road near you and want to do something about it, idverde will help you clear it up safely at a time of your choosing. Thank you to Julia Smith at idverde for coordinating these efforts. To book idverde’s support, please email, copying

Second, with thanks to Lieutenant Colonel Rosco Noott, Commanding Officer of the Army Training Regiment (ATR) in Winchester, the ATR – together with idverde – will be organising a trial morning’s litter-pick covering eight miles of country roads in the Winchester countryside. We greatly look forward to working with Major Nick Gunnell, Captain Joshua Beale and the ATR’s recruits on this fabulous new enterprise.

Third, after our first successful ‘LitterFit’ with Matt Keeble, a Bishop’s Waltham personal trainer, a few weeks ago, Matt has agreed to lead regular litter-inspired fitness sessions. If you enjoy jogging and would like to give your exercise an extra meaning, please email for more details. Matt’s sessions will be free of charge and on stretches of rural roads that are ‘lightly littered’, so can be cleared as part of a regular run. Once again, idverde will be on hand to support this initiative.

We hope that there is something in here for everyone wishing to keep the beautiful rural roads in Winchester clean and tidy. If you have other ideas as to how we might do this, or wish to show your support in some way, please do get in touch. We can only achieve our goals together, and would love to hear from you.
