The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with a simple aim: to bring people across the country together to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and beaches.
‘Keep Britain Tidy’ want to inspire 400,000 people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us. Join their growing army of #LitterHeroes who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.
On Saturday 10 March 2018, a ‘Spring Clean’ event took place from 10am to 12 midday on Skinburness Road, Silloth. All tools and equipment were provided. Solway Holiday Village kindly offered to provide hot beverages.
A very big THANK YOU to Wendy Mathers, Jane Allen, Tom Brown, Elaine Wannop and Wendy Jameson who, despite the rain, turned up for the Spring Clean and managed to collect almost 20 bags of rubbish from Skinburness Road. Not only was there the usual rubbish that you would expect but there was a carpet, crockery, signs, electrical cable and garden equipment which was disappointing. Thanks to Allerdale Borough Council for arranging for the rubbish to be taken away afterwards and to Silloth Town Council for organising the event.
