Great British Spring Clean - Campaign group will be Keeping Bromsgrove Beautiful

CAMPAIGN group Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful is aiming to carry out or support a tidy-up activity every day for the next month as part of the national Great British Spring Clean.

The annual drive gets under way today and runs until April 23 and the group is determined to play its part in helping improve the district.

Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful founder and Keep Britain Tidy #LitterHeroes Ambassador Sarah Milburn said: “I’m so excited our group will be contributing to the Great British Spring Clean.

“We’re working in partnership with so many fabulous local groups and with everyone pulling together I’m sure we can reach our target to have some activity happen in Bromsgrove on every day of the campaign.”

KBB group members will be out on various days during the campaign, litter-picking in groups or as individuals, with KBB’s own regular litter-pick taking place next Saturday, March 30.

KBB will also be supporting and promoting activities organised by other local groups, including litter-picks by Catshill First and Middle Schools, Oakhills and Parklands, Lickey Hills, Bromsgrove Street Pastors, Rigby Hall School, Chadsgrove School, Finstall Cubs, Fairfield and Hunters Hill College.

Sarah added: “We’d love to hear from anyone who wants to contribute to this fantastic community event.

“Our group was set up to give people a sense of pride in their area and the Great British Spring Clean is aiming to inspire people across the country to join forces. We want to be a part of this.

“Alongside the litter-picking I am planning a personal challenge and I am looking for nominations for grubby road name signs as I hope to clean one on-a-day.”

Visit the ‘Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful’ Facebook page or email kbb@itstartswithus.co.uk to find out more about the campaign.

Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful also wants to find the grubbiest road signs in Bromsgrove district – post your pictures to the Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful Page or email them to kbb@itstartswithus.co.uk

KBB is also looking for help with its website. Anyone who could help develop the website on a voluntary basis is also urged to get in touch with the group by emailing or contacting them via Facebook.
