Maria Caulfield MP has pledged her support for this year’s Great British Spring Clean, run by environmental 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 Maria Caulfield MP to help us reach our target of getting 500,000 people out, taking action to clean up every corner of the country.”
Maria Caulfield MP said “It is so important to keep our beautiful local area clean from litter. We live in one of the most beautiful part of the country and we as local people are custodians of it, so we must ensure we do not drop litter and pick it up when we find it blighting our streets or countryside. Locally there are many dedicated volunteers regularly beach cleaning and I would urge people to find their nearest group and get involved when they can.”
