'High Tidies'' making waves in Wirral

THE 'High Tidies'' are the latest beach clean up group to set up in Wirral and are looking for new members.  1 of their founding members, Peter Woodall, helped create the High Tidies' when he retired and said:- "It's surprising what 2 or 3 determined people can achieve in 90 minutes even when the group is small, now we're looking for new members to join us and keep West Wirral litter free."

The High Tidies' have been boosted by ₤200 funding from the Council, via Wirral West Constituency Committee's:- 'Small Grant Big Difference' fund
*, and plan to buy extra litter picking equipment to support their work. Cllr Jeff Green, Chair of Wirral West Constituency Committee said:- "The fund supports a diverse range of projects across the west of the borough. The application process highlighted the fantastic work of many voluntary, community and faith groups in Wirral and I am delighted that so many local groups will receive some extra cash to help them grow."

The High Tidies' are keen to continue their growth and are calling on other local residents to help out as much as they can.  They have planned a series of fortnightly litter picks, on West Kirby Beach, through to the end of October 2017. If you would like to take part, the High Tidies' will meet at West Kirby Beach at the bottom of Dee Lane, West Kirby, at 10am, on the following dates:- Sunday, 17 September 2017, Sunday, 1 October 2017, Sunday, 15 October 2017. and Sunday, 29 October 2017. All welcome.  If there is a particular area of West Wirral that you feel needs a little bit of TLC then go along to the next scheduled litter pick as the High Tidies' are looking for new areas to target. You can also contact them via the High Tidies' Facebook Page.

* Local groups were invited to bid for grants of up to ₤200 as part of the 'Small Grant, Big Difference' fund. The fund was introduced as part of Wirral's 'Love Where You Live' campaign and will support a number of different initiatives to improve West Wirral's local high streets, open spaces and community assets.
