#LoveGWP – Litter picking events to resume soon.
In line with COVID-19 government guidelines litter picks have been suspended around GWP area.
We are now able to arrange small group picks (6), in partnership with the South and Vale Waste Team.
The first pick has been scheduled for Saturday 3rd April (10-12), unfortunately we can only have a group size of 6 so there are not spaces available this time round.
For anyone else who wishes to get involved in litter picking please contact the Waste team directly and provide them with booking form/details. They will loan equipment and arrange collections with you directly.
We are hopeful, in line with COVID-19 guidelines we will soon be able to hold litter picks of groups of 30 hopefully in late May. Please keep an eye on GWPRA site for Facebook events/details or contact Tammi – email@example.com.
In support with Keep Britain Tidy / Surfers Against Sewage / Planet Patrol and localised initiatives we have created a LoveGWP facebook page to raise awareness of keeping our environments on GWP. Watch this space for further information on waste audits, local school initiatives and bin audits.
Whichever way you decide to do your litter pick please stay safe – please don’t litter pick by busy roads and please follow the guidance from Keep Britain Tidy – and their advice about litter picking and COVID-19 safety advice.

UPDATE: The planning application has now gone in
The planning application will be lodged in a few weeks but there have been some changes since last year that are worth reviewing. The new leaflet information for the Didcot Data Centre is here. There have been a number of revisions to the original pre-application last year, following the public consultation. Details of the revisions and list of 20 questions and answers can be found here
At the virtual GWP Residents’ meeting on Monday 8th March 2021, there will be an opportunity to hear from representatives of the data centre developer. Please can you post any questions for them on our Facebook Group or email firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 1st March 2021, to allow them to provide detailed answers for you.
✅ We have added Covid19 additional resuscitation guidance and extra PPE to our Community defibrillators at Boundary Park and the Northern Neighbourhood Community Centre. The choice of whether to do CPR in the standard way or modified for covid is down to you at the time but the extra PPE should help keep both rescuers and casulties safer.
The link to the planning application can be found here and the suggested GWPRA response from the November 2020 GWPRA meeting is below:
