Great British Spring Clean - Rallying call to Bromsgrove residents for one final push

Tristan Harris 19th Apr, 2019 Updated: 19th Apr, 2019

WITH JUST days left to go in this year’s Great British Spring Clean, campaign group Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful (KBB) is hoping residents and community groups will provide one final push to spruce up the district.

Already there have been 118 clean-ups, involving 340 people with almost 100 hours of tidying taking place.

There have been 259 bags of litter collected and 56 road signs have been cleaned.

Outside of KBB’s Litter Log there have been other activities carried out, including clean-ups by Alvechurch Village Society, Fairfield Village Community Association and the Alvechurch Running Buddies.

Staff and students from Rigby Hall School have continued their efforts by holding a litter-pick at Sanders Park and on Monday BBC Midlands Today visited the town to find out about the campaign and the challenge by KBB lead Sarah Milburn to clean at least one road sign a day.

The TV crew then featured one of the Monday morning litter-pick’s organised by Emily Attwell who runs Nature’s Intention, the Bromsgrove zero waste shop.

The Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful team will have a stall at the St George’s Day event in Bromsgrove High Street tomorrow with quizzes and information about how people can get involved.

And there will be more litter-picks before the curtain comes down on the Great British Spring Clean on Tuesday.
