Litter picker needed for Greenfield

Image result for litter picker cartoon imageThe Parish Council is looking to take on a casual litter picker in Greenfield to work about 2 hours a week at the living wage rate, to keep the village tidy and clear from litter. We prefer this to be done in short stints so it doesn’t take too much time out of your day and means that litter does not accumulate. We have a litter picker in Flitton who would be happy to explain how the work is organised there. The Council will provide sacks, gloves and reflective clothing

We do not stipulate when this needs to be done, so it would be up to you and results will be judged by the appearance of the village. Need to be willing to work in all weather and at all times of the year as litter throwers are not seasonal, and you need to like being outside and walking.

If you are interested, then please contact the Clerk to the Council Mrs D Lawson on clerk@flittongreenfield.org.uk or call 01525 860377.

Flitton and Greenfield

Greenfield is a small village about 1.2 miles from the town of Flitwick, it lies across Flitwick Moor and is on the opposite side of the River Flit. It forms part of the parish of Flitton and Greenfield. The area was once well known as a strawberry producing area, and the fields were full of strawberry plants on either side of the main road. It is now a thriving village with several small businesses.

Flitton  (Flichtam, Fllite, and Flute) forms the other part of the parish and derives its name from river Flit. It is the home of the De Grey Mausoleum adjacent to St John the Baptist church. Flitton contains the hamlet of Wardhedges. It too has a number of small businesses and working farms.
