The Active Communities Team also work with community groups and organisations to develop even more opportunities for local people to get involved in fun activities. The team also works across hard to reach communities including Curborough and Chasetown, We support events, deliver activities and set up specific community-led programmes to help in making the most of where people live.

Lichfield Litter Legends

Active communities are behind the new community group Lichfield Litter Legends. A weekly litter pick currently happens with Curborough Community Centre. We are looking for volunteers to get involved and give something back to their community.

Our weekly litter pick is at 9.30am at Curborough Community Centre, all volunteers welcome! We walk for an hour then head back to the centre for a cup of tea/coffee provided by places of welcome.

We are looking to get more areas of Lichfield covered by our group, if you know of a current litter hot spot and want to get involved, drop us a message ( ). The team are looking at funding to get equipment but we need your help on the ground to come help us clean the streets.
