What is it?
The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with one simple ambition, to bring together people from across the country to clear litter that blights our Towns, villages, countryside and coastline. The initiative follows on from the Clean for the Queen campaign in 2016 which involved 250,000 people in local clean ups.
Why did Fareham get involved?
Around 2.25 million pieces of litter are dropped on the streets of the UK every day, with 30 million tons of rubbish collected from England's streets each year.
Here in Fareham alone we collect over 700 tonnes of street litter from our bins and streets each year across the Borough.
We think the Great British Spring Clean is a fantastic initiative inspiring us all come together, encouraging the local community to help clean up the borough to make it a beautiful place for us all to live and work.
What is the Council doing?
Our main clean up event will take place on Friday 16 March in Warsash Village from 10am-2pm, focusing on the area around the public toilets by the carpark in Warsash Road.
With help from the local community, Fareham in Bloom volunteers and Fareham Borough Council staff members we will be:
