Derwenthorpe Litter Pickers

Do you love where you live?  Do you enjoy using the cycle path to walk or cycle into town? Or maybe you like to walk your dog along it?  Or your children use it as a safe, green space to play on their scooters or bikes?  

The stretch from Metcalfe Lane, through Derwenthorpe to James Street is part of the National Cycle Network, (Route 66 which runs from central Manchester to Spurn Head).  It’s the responsibility of SUSTRANS, who maintain it by using volunteer rangers.  Members of the York East SUSTRANS group are mainly from Derwenthorpe, but includes others from Heworth and Osbaldwick.  We are also supported by City of York Council, without whose help we couldn’t do what we do.

So, if you value this green route, you may want to help.  Just a few hours of litter picking is a surprisingly easy way to make a big difference.  You don’t have to become a SUSTRANS volunteer ranger – you can just join us occasionally when you can spare the time.  It’s a surprisingly easy way to make a big and very noticeable difference, it’s sociable and we don’t go out in the rain!  If you think you can spare some time (just a few hours a year will help) or for more information, please contact Wendy on 01904 500462, phone or text 07752448286, or use contact us
