#GBSpringClean 2019: South Gosforth joins the Keep Britain Tidy Campaign!

30th March 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Free

More than 20 volunteers helped to make the January 2019 Litter Pick a huge success!

Every last Saturday in the month we are meeting up to join in the fun to make South Gosforth a better place!

Let’s make the March Litter Pick even better! Maybe with better weather but definitely as part of the nationwide Keep Britain Tidy Campaign!

Be part of the pick

22 March – 23 April 2019

We are calling on #LitterHeroes across the country to help improve the environment on their doorstep. We’re aiming to inspire 500,000 people to join forces – in partnership with community organisations, businesses and the government – to collect and safely dispose of litter from our streets, parks and beaches, recycling as much as possible.

So join us, as we prepare to stand together and declare that litter pollution, including single-use plastic – which degrades the beauty of our environment and threatens to harm wildlife – is not acceptable.

We are meeting at 10 am in front of Thyme Square Cafe on Station Road. Equipment will be provided.

We will first get together to get to know your neighbours and have a chat. During this time we can also better coordinate which streets should be targeted and who goes where. After we are happy and maybe have found new friends we will spread out.

We hope to see again lots of South Gosforth residents and surroundings to help to keep the area clean.

Please register to be kept informed about last minute changes regarding this litter pick and upcoming ones in the future. It also helps us to make sure that enough equipment will be provided and to know how many people need food or drink!
