The Great British Spring Clean starts this Friday and Malvern Hills Trust are encouraging people to get involved in cleaning up their local area.
On the 25 March 2023 they’re inviting people to join them on a litter pick at the Community Woodland, Townsend Way. The event will run from 10am to 12:00 noon and will be an opportunity to get involved and help care for our special green spaces.
The litter pick will be guided by Trust staff along a wide verge which is covered with wildflowers in the summer months.
Gloves, litter pickers and bags will be provided. If you’d like to take part, please email [email protected] to book your place and receive more information about the day.
The Great British Spring Clean which runs from 17 March to 2nd April is the nation’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign.
