Calling #LitterHeroes

Written on .

We hope you'll be able to show support for the Great Marlborough September Clean which runs from 11 to 27 September.

Fabulous Margaret and a team from Tesco hit the ground running over the weekend of 12-13 September and we hope they've inspired you!  View the gallery here

Current government restrictions on the numbers of people who can gather together outdoors, and social distancing rules, means this time it'll be a little different. We can't lead organised groups this time but you can opt either for:

Method 1 - Litter-picking alone or in pairs - you can give as little as 15 minutes to the campaign, it all counts!

Method 2 – Your own private clean-up in small groups of family and friends. A small group is defined as a maximum of six people however, this number may increase or decrease over time – please follow changes to government guidance

You can decide where and when you join in - just let us know. We'll provide litter pickers and bags and you'll need to let us know where we can collect your full bags.
Don't forget to take photos of all your good work and send them to us after your pick.

Those #LitterHeroes who have joined us before will remember Clare Harris doing a great job to lead the groups in person. While she can't be with you this time she will still be very much involved and will be here to support, encourage and answer questions - just without the cake (sorry).

All the Coronavirus guidance can be found online and you must read it in full before taking part for your own safety. You can find it at https://www.keepbritaintidy.org/get-involved/support-our-campaigns/great-british-spring-clean/coronavirus-guidance 

So do please join the event, pick a date and a method, then get in touch with Clare to arrange to get all the necessary equipment - charris@marlborough-tc.gov.uk . We will then send you more information and guidance: hints and tips about how to conduct your litter pick safely and any recent changes to government guidance.
