Next month sees the start of the annual Great British Spring Clean and Solihull’s army of Litter Heroes is looking strong.
The main campaign weekend runs from 2 – 4 March and the council’s Love Solihull Team is supporting community groups across the borough during the GB Spring Clean weekend and beyond.
Armed with bin bags and litter pickers, the #LitterHeroes will be cleaning up at Langley Hall Park, Tudor Grange Park, Palmer’s Rough and Olton Jubilee Park, to name just a few.
Councillor Alison Rolf, Cabinet Member for Environment and Housing, said: “This year’s Great British Spring Clean is a great opportunity for us to get together to make our borough cleaner, greener and safer. There are lots of activities taking place across Solihull and you’ll be joining people up and down the country who have had enough of other people’s litter and are willing to do something about it.
“Love Solihull does a great job in promoting these ideas all year round and supporting local community groups who want to make a difference to their environment. So whether you can give up some time for the Spring Clean or you would like to do something later in the year we would love to hear from you.”
