I have pledged my support for this year’s Great British Spring Clean, run by environment charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The campaign, which runs from March 22nd to April 23rd, will see up to half a million people taking action to clean up streets, parks and beaches across the country.
The Great British Spring Clean brings together individuals, community organisations, businesses and councils to make a difference to the environment on our doorstep and in 2018 around 370,000 #LitterHeroes collected more than 630,000 bags of rubbish.
Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton said: “The Great British Spring Clean is an opportunity for the millions of people who care about the environment on their doorstep to do something positive that will make a visible difference.
“Regardless of politics, everyone can agree that tackling the litter pollution that despoils our country is something we should all support and it is fantastic to have the support of David to help us reach our target of getting 500,000 people out, taking action to clean up every corner of the country.”
We must do all we can to keep our streets and countryside clean. Not only is litter a blight on our landscape, but it harms our natural environment and puts our wildlife at risk. The Great British Spring Clean is a fantastic opportunity for communities to come together and help clean up Flintshire.
People don’t need to do much as a little can go a long way. Just picking up litter when walking the dog, or when you see a discarded crisp packet whilst doing the school run it makes a huge difference to our villages and towns.
