Greening Tetbury's Great British Spring Clean
Time & Location
About the Event
Greening Tetbury is supporting the Great BritishSpring Clean initiative launched by Keep Britain Tidy.
While we can't organise a group litter pick as a community,we’re asking the people of Tetbury to help tidy up the townand green spaces across these two weeks, whether as afamily, on your dog walk or as part of your daily exercise.
All you need is a bag and some heavy-duty gloves. Andyou’ll be doing something amazing! You’ll help:
Litter picking is also a great way of teaching your kids about wildlife, the environment and community.
Good things come to those who pick!
All litter pickers taking part have the chance to win a £30book voucher. Simply post a photo of your litter pick toFacebook and tag Greening Tetbury and you will be enteredinto the draw.
The book voucher can only be used in the Yellow-Lighted Bookshop in Tetbury or Nailsworth and is non-transferrable. Photos must be uploaded between Friday 28 May and Monday 14 June. The winner will be drawn on Tuesday 15 June and announced on the Greening Tetbury Facebook page.
Tetbury Town Council has 10 sets of litter picking equipment that are available to the community to use. Please contact Georgina at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01666 504670 during office hours.
We recommend that you wear heavy-duty gloves whilst litter picking and carry two rubbish bags – one for recyclable rubbish and one for non-recyclables. This makes it easy to recycle the things you can when you get home.
Please dispose of your rubbish at home responsibly.
