To celebrate summer being just around the corner, communities are organising Clear Up Days on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March
The first day of spring is Saturday 21 March and to celebrate summer being around the corner, communities around the country are organising Clear Up Days on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 March.
So whether you're a group of friends and neighbours, a litter clean-up group, a local business, a school or on your own, what better way to kick off the season than by organising a big spring clean?
Community Clear Up Day is a 'national spring clean', backed by the Government, that aims to spruce up the country's high streets, residential and business areas, villages and parks.
The first 300 community groups, schools, uniformed groups, local authorities, Women's Institutes or housing associations to register their Clear Up Day event with us will receive a free Big Tidy Up pack. As a charity, we will be asking any businesses who are organising a Clear Up Day to make a contribution towards the cost of their pack.
The Clear Up Day team have also developed a range of downloadable resources, including planning tips, editable leaflets, posters and banners which you can use to help organise and promote the event.
Together we can kick off spring 2015 with our public spaces litter free.
