11 Feb Love Your Local Area for Community Clear Up Day
Community Clear Up Day is a shout out to communities to Love their Local Area…..call it if you will a ‘national spring clean’ to be held on Saturday 21st March, the first day of spring, with the aim of sprucing up the country’s high streets, residential and business areas, villages and parks.
There are already many community and corporate groups around the country involved in regular litter picking activities. This national initiative, being delivered by the Department for Communities and Local Government in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy, wants to give these groups the recognition they deserve and encourage other groups – great and small – to help end the scourge of litter. It is also urging the manufacturers of items commonly associated with littering to join in and contribute to the clear up of our streets and public places. It’s amazing how small actions can add up to transform local spaces from an eyesore to an asset across the country.
A handy tool kit and information pack, which includes customisable posters, leaflets and banners, is available. This material can be downloaded for free at http://bit.ly/clearupday. You can add your own event details, print them or display online and place them locally. You can also get tips for carrying out a litter-pick, register your event, and find out about other clear-up activities going on in your area from Keep Britain Tidy via http://www.thebigtidyup.org.
