North Norfolk District Council is backing a campaign to get half a million people out and about across Britain 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.

NNDC will be encouraging and supporting groups that want to help clear up litter that blights the streets, parks and beaches in our district.

Cllr Angie Fitch-Tillett Cabinet Member for Environmental Services said: “We have been working hard with our communities to keep our beaches, villages and towns clean and tidy. The Great British Spring Clean is a chance to keep up the great work and encourage more people to take part in making North Norfolk an even better place to live.”

Many other organisations will also be supporting the clean up on March 3-5, 2017, including the Women’s Institute, the National Trust and the RSPCA, as well as a range of businesses.

TV wildlife presenter and children’s favourite Steve Backshall is lending his support to the campaign, which is backed by anti-litter charities including Keep Britain Tidy, Keep Wales Tidy, Keep Scotland Beautiful, Marine Conservation Society and Surfers Against Sewage.

If you want to take part in the campaign or to set up your own event, contact North Norfolk District Council’s Environmental Team at cleansing@north-norfolk.gov.uk  or 01263 516195.
