Get involved in the Great British Spring Clean3rd April 2019
This is a national campaign by Keep Britain Tidy to encourage community involvement in looking after our local environment and to encourage a change in behaviour.
Litter blights our parks, streets and shoreline, diverts financial resources from other facilities and is harmful to local wildlife.
We are calling on residents across the City to help improve the environment on their doorstep by organising or joining a local litter pick.
By joining in the Great British Spring Clean you will help to make a difference in your neighbourhood and is a great way to get to know your neighbours.
Lots of groups and individuals have planned to get involved, check the list of events already taking place.

If there isn’t an event already organised and you know an area that might need a touch of TLC, let us know and we will try to connect you with other like-minded neighbours. Also we might be able to help with resources and can arrange to collect the litter after the event.
