We are a supporter of The Big Tidy Up, England's biggest ever litter picking campaign organised by Keep Britain Tidy. Since the campaign was launched in 2008, over 15,000 groups of volunteers have rolled up their sleeves to help clean up their community, collecting more than 62,000 sacks of litter. Anyone can join in the campaign - parish or village, school, community group, youth group, individuals, and businesses.

Great British Spring Clean
The Great British Spring Clean took place from 2 to 25 March 2018. The dates were extended due to the bad weather conditions. It was supported by, among others, TV naturalist and writer Steve Backshall, the BAFTA award-winning Deadly 60 presenter. The campaign was also backed by the RSPCA, the Marine Conservation Society, McDonalds, Greggs, Lidl, Costa and many other organisations.

Help with litter picks
We can help with litter picks in your parish or village, at your school, recreation ground, footpath or street by lending litter picking equipment, including; litter picking sticks, gloves, high visibility vests (in both adult and kids sizes), handi hoops and sacks. We can also provide a disposal service for the collected litter.
