April Spring Clean 2013

Throughout April, a series of Spring Clean events, including litter picks, parks conservation events and the first Rivercare event of 2013 will be taking place across the Borough.

 

Lower schools are also getting in on the act with special assemblies from Flynn the Bin Elf, the Council’s anti litter mascot and hosting their own litter picks.

 

Most of the events are held on Saturday mornings between 10am-12 noon and a full list is available on the Council website: www.bedford.gov.uk/volunteering. If you have any questions about any of the events, please use the contact details below.

 

Councillor Sarah-Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Community and Regulatory Services, said: “Our community litter picks and park events improve our local communities and are always extremely well supported.

 

“The series of events throughout this month includes a number of litter picks and other events and I would encourage anyone interested in helping out during April to check out the events on the website and get involved.”

 

If your parish council, school, community group, uniformed group or even a small group of neighbours want to host their own spring clean event please get in touch with the Community Volunteering Team who can support litter pick events by loaning equipment and giving advice.

 

BedfordBID is kindly sponsoring the Spring Clean with a crème egg for every volunteer who takes part in a litter pick or parks event as a thank you.
