24 February 2015
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
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
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.
