We are asking everyone to come forward and help us to make Ottery spick and span for the Summer! Between 11am and 1pm we will be trying to cover as much of the town as possible with buckets, sponges and litter pickers. We want to clean road signs, spruce up flowerpots, remove any litter and leave the town sparkling.

We were hoping to be free of Covid restrictions, but there is still some advice in place for outdoor events so we will need to be well organised and ask you to follow our lead.

Where to Meet

We will be meeting in the following locations:

  • The Volunteer Inn
  • The Coffee Bank
  • The Town Council
  • Parish Church Steps
  • Samosa Lady
  • Kings Manor Care Home

At each place one of our volunteers will be able to hand out buckets, sponges, brushes and litter pickers. We have some hi-viz vests you can borrow if you do not have your own.

We will be sending people in different directions so that the groups do not overlap.

The groups will cover

The Volunteer Inn -> Hind Street, Land of Canaan

The Coffee Bank -> Broad Street, Yonder Street, Slade Road

Town Council ->Tip Lane, Winters Lane

Parish Church Steps -> Silver, Gold Street, Paternoster Row

Samosa Lady ->Mill Street to the bridge

Kings Manor Care Home -> Hospital, Finnimore to the bridge

At the end we are asking everyone to return all of their equipment to the Town Council building in Broad Street – or contact us and we will come and collect it.

Whether you want to volunteer or have a job you think we could help with, please contact us at, through Facebook at or leave a message at 01404 600013.
