NEW! The Great British Spring Clean [click for details]
The Great British Spring Clean
The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign over the weekend of 2 - 4 March 2018 with a simple aim: to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.
We want to inspire 500,000 people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us. Join our growing army of #LitterHeroes who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.
Together we can make a difference and clean up the environment on our doorstep.
Once again, Stanton on the Wolds will be participating in this annual event. Our litter pick will take place on:
Saturday 3rd March 2018 from 10 - 12
We’ll meet at 138 Browns Lane to collect equipment, which is all provided, and allocate areas. Our regular litter pickers will be pleased to know that the Parish Council has purchased some litter picking hoops which hold the rubbish sacks open, making it easier especially when it’s windy!
Please join us to clean up our village – the more volunteers we have, the quicker we can do it! We’ll meet afterwards at 138 Browns Lane for coffee and cake. If you’d like any more information please contact Hilary Whitby (for contact details see Parish Councillors).
You can find out more about the Great British Spring Clean, and other campaigns to reduce litter and waste, on the website of the charitable organisation Keep Britain Tidy: www.keepbritaintidy.org.uk.

About Stanton-on-the-Wolds Village
Stanton-on-the-Wolds is a small village ten miles south-east of Nottingham. The Saxon settlement that became the village was called ‘Stanton’ or ‘stoney town’ after the copious stones or boulders found in the locality; ‘Wold’ refers to a low wooded hill.
The medieval village lay between the church (now dedicated to All Saints) and the manor house to the west. Following sixteenth century enclosure for sheep farming, the village houses were dilapidated and the village became deserted.
