Great British Spring Clean(February 15, 2017)
Your country needs you!
Volunteers all over the country will be taking part in the Great British Spring Clean during the weekend of 3rd to 5th March 2017.
Partners include Country Life magazine, the RSPB, the Marine Conservation Society, Harrogate Spring Water, Coco Cola, Costa, the CPRE and the RSPCA. Keep Britain Tidy are also a partner and they hope to double the number of people taking part this year - it was 250,000 last year.
Please let's all make an effort throughout March 2017 and clear up our country. Here's Steve Buckshall explaining more about it
I've noticed the litter getting MUCH worse in our area and on journeys throughout West Sussex. Personally I cannot understand how on earth people can throw litter away e.g. out of the window on car journeys. It's time the penalties were made much tougher for the people who do it. Anyway, rant over (or I'll never stop...)
The event is calling on individuals, community groups, charities, sports clubs, business, local authorities and many more to sign up and take part. So far, the initiative has the support of 400 English, Scottish and Welsh local authorities, and 670 schools have registered. There are competions for primary and secondary schools.
