Action Northbrook, is a forum of organisations and voluntary groups that meet to work together for the benefit of the Northbrook communities. Last year Action Northbrook did a community litter pick on Longcroft Park as part of Keep Britain Tidy, with almost 200 participants taking part! This year, Action Northbook have decided to focus on young people and are creating a Youth event in April. The date of the event is Wed 10th April, 10-1pm which is during the Easter holidays. The venue will be Pond Lane in Durrington.
