Become a Green Heart Champion

If you are passionate about where you live, join our Green Heart Champions who help keep the district clean and tidy.

You can volunteer whether you have a little bit of time now and then, or can help out on a regular basis. As long as you have enthusiasm, there are opportunities near you, whatever your age or skills.
