Litter in Jesmond Dene

The Friends of Jesmond Dene and the Volunteer Rangers actively work to improve the Dene, assisting the Council Rangers with practical works and events and funding projects to enhance the Dene. We are very aware of the impact that the Council’s austerity measures have had on the City’s parks in recent years in terms of vastly reduced maintenance and cleansing.  

We share your frustration regarding litter being thoughtlessly dropped in the Dene by a minority of park users.  We would ask that everyone takes responsibility for their own litter. Please put it into one of the large bins throughout the Dene or, if the bins are full, take it home with you to put in your own domestic bins.  

If any of you would like to get involved in an organised litter pick in a particular area of the Dene, please email Sarah or Mike, the Park Rangers.

Thank you, The Friends of Jesmond Dene Committee
