The Smithy Wood Action Team always welcome a hand in the latest monthly litter pick on the roadside verges of Smithy Wood Road and Cowley Hill in Northern Sheffield. It’s a great opportunity to take in the beautiful autumn colours close up while making a difference to the environment, that benefits everyone. Everyone is welcome, so come along and join the local action team that is claiming ownership of this beautiful corner of Sheffield for the people.
The team advise to wear suitable footwear such as boots or wellies and to bring your own gloves if possible, but provide pickers and bags. The meeting point is Smithy Wood Road (S61 2SE) before the Traveller’s Pub and you can travel on public transport by catching the 135a bus, the 1a bus or by train to Chapeltown with a short walk the other side (see the Travel South Yorkshire planner). The litter pick is usually the first Sunday of every month, check the Facebook page here for more details.
