Clear Up Day

Community Clear Up Day is a 'national spring clean', backed by the Government, that aims to spruce up England’s high streets, residential and business areas, villages and parks. Together we can kick off spring 2015 with our public spaces litter free.

Saturday 21 March is the official start of spring and whether you're a group of friends and neighbours, a litter clean-up group, a local business, a school or on your own, what better way to kick off the season than with a big spring clean?

It's really simple and fun to take part in Community Clear Up Day – and it's free!

Kris Hopkins MP, Minister for Local Government said: "I'm delighted the National Association of Local Councils is supporting Community Clear Up Day. Parish councils are at the heart of their local communities and are perfectly placed to get behind this nationwide spring clean, bringing people together to take pride in their area and end the litter scourge."
