Today I had the opportunity to support Keep Britain Tidy's campaign. The group are running the 'Great British Spring Clean' from 20th March - 13th April 2020. I got to meet their mascot - a womble!
The group aim to keep our streets, parks and open spaces clean and are encouraging the community to get involved! Keep Britain Tidy is encouraging residents to host their own clean up sessions or join somebody else's project.
Tamworth Borough Council already works closely with a community-led litter picking group to organise community based clean ups and this group will be running additional events during the Great British Spring Clean.
If you want to get involved, make new friends and help make our area cleaner, click here or email Cllr Robert Pritchard on Robert.Pritchard@Tamworth.Gov.UK to find out the latest dates or to suggest a litter hot spot.
You can also report litter directly to the Council using the 'MyStaffs' phone app or by visiting www.tamworth.gov.uk/reportit
