Haywards Heath Town Council has pledged its support for this year’s Great British Spring Clean, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.
The campaign, which runs from March 20th to April 13th, will see up to 600,000 people taking action to clean up streets, parks and beaches across the country.
The Great British Spring Clean, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, brings together individuals, community organisations, businesses and councils to show they love where they live and in 2019 more than half a million #LitterHeroes collected more than 900,000 bags of rubbish.
Last year, Haywards Heath Town Council organised and took part in several litter picks around the Town, launched a post code litter pick campaign to encourage local neighbours to meet and make new friends while gathering litter in their local area and installed new bins to combat the amount of litter dropped in our Town.
Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton OBE said: “The overwhelming response to last year’s Great British Spring Clean showed that there are many hundreds of thousands of people out there who love where they live and are prepared to take action to make it better for themselves, their families and their communities.
“We are delighted that Haywards Heath Town Council is supporting this year’s campaign and would like to thank them for their support.
“Without councils across the country giving the campaign their backing, our volunteers would not be able to do the incredible job they do.”
Cllr Sandy Ellis, comments: “We all play a huge part in keeping our Town litter free and I have been delighted by the number of Haywards Heath residents, community groups and organisation that have come out in force to keep our parks and open spaces a happy and health place to live for our community and wild life. We owe a massive debt to the hours of volunteering that has been given to good causes such as this and I do hope we can get as many of you involved in our
Great British Spring Clean on Saturday 4th April in Clair Park. We will be there from 11am and will provide Litter Pickers and bags and invite you all to join us at the Great British Spring Clean to keep our Town clean for us all to enjoy.”
