Great British Spring Clean
In Rayne, we will be holding our own event on Saturday 4th March – please contact the Clerk on 01376 552489 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us in order that we can ensure as much of the village as possible is covered. We will be meeting in the Village Hall Car Park at 10.00am, litter bags and litter picker sticks will be supplied. Please bring your own gloves.
Braintree District Council is backing a national campaign to get half a million people out and about cleaning up their local communities in March 2017. The brand new Great British Spring Clean will roll out for the first time in 2017, with a view to it becoming an annual event helping to bring people together and clean up the country.
Braintree District Council will be encouraging and supporting groups and individuals who want to ‘do their bit’ to help clear up the litter that blights our streets and parks. Litter remains a huge problem across the country, causing harm to the environment and wildlife, with councils in England having to spend over £700 million on street cleaning services every year. The District Council will be doing its bit by sweeping and litter-picking the A120 in our district which stretches from Marks Farm to Felsted.
