Litter Pick by residents and Councillors

As part of the Great British Spring Clean, over just two days last week, we had 36 volunteers out litter-picking who managed to collect 48 bags of rubbish.
Higham Parish Council would like to thank residents and Councillors who helped in the Litter Pick that took place during the first week of Jun 2021.
Higham residents are proud of the village and want to promote keeping the village clean and tidy.
This was an impressive effort and Higham Parish Council would like to send a huge thank you to those who took part.
