The Great British Spring Clean takes place in west Norfolk

Volunteers across west Norfolk are taking part in the Great British Spring Clean between 20 March and 13 April 2020.

As part of a national campaign, from Keep Britain Tidy, the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk are loaning clean-up kits that include grabbers, high-vis vests and waste bags to volunteers who want to tidy up their area. After the litter pick the kits will be collected and bags of waste disposed of by the borough council.

Cllr Ian Devereux, borough council cabinet member for Environment, said: "We are delighted to be supporting the Great British Spring Clean again and encourage as many groups, individuals and organisations as possible to take part.

“Community litter picks have already been organised by groups in Boughton, Castle Rising, East Rudham, Gayton, Hardings Pits, Howard Junior School, Stradsett, Syderstone, West Lynn and West Walton.

"We're acting as a distribution point for the litter pick kits but supplies are limited, so get in touch quickly."

Litter picking kits are available to loan to community groups throughout the year. For further details and to book people can email cleanup@west-norfolk.gov.uk

Volunteers are invited to join an arranged clean-up or host one of their own at https://www.keepbritaintidy.org/ and use the hashtag #GBSpringClean on social media during their clean-up.
