Following the success of last year’s Big Rural Spring Clean, The Countryside Alliance is thrilled to announce its’ support of this year’s Great British Spring Clean (March 22nd to April 23rd) by becoming a community partner and coordinating an event in support of this initiative run by Keep Britain Tidy.
The Countryside Alliance’s Countryside Clean Up will be held on the 6th and 7th April and we will be encouraging all of our members to organise a litter picking event in their local area.
Countryside Alliance’s Polly Portwin said: “This is a fantastic initiative which we are very pleased to be supporting by organising our own Countryside Clean Up on the 6th and 7th April.
“Not only is discarded litter an eyesore, but it is potentially hazardous to farmed livestock, wild animals and domestic pets and by joining all groups together that use the countryside we hope to make a difference.”
Chief Executive of Keep Britain Tidy, Allison Ogden-Newton commented: “The Great British Spring Clean is an opportunity for the millions of people who care about the environment on their doorstep to do something positive that will make a visible difference.
“Without the support of groups like the Countryside Alliance we would not be able to make that difference and we thank them for their support.”
