26th March 2018 Posted in Community News
Bracknell Town Council and Bracknell Forest Council in partnership with Continental Landscapes Limited organised the clean-up in Bracknell on Saturday 24th March 2018. This event was in support of the national Great British Spring Clean campaign by Keep Britain Tidy.
11 Separate litter picks were held throughout Bracknell. Litter pickers, disposable gloves and bags were provided to the volunteers at the different starting points across Bracknell. Three trucks full of litter was collected and then taken to South Hill Park in order to recycle as much as possible.
Over 100 volunteers took part in the event including residents, scout groups, councillors, Bracknell Town Council employees all joined the Bracknell Town Council Mayor and Deputy Mayor. Fusion Volunteer Group and staff from McDonalds Mill Park also took part. Hot drinks were enjoyed at the end of the event over discussions on how profuse the community spirit is in Bracknell.
Deputy Town Mayor, Cllr Sandra Ingham said “It is important to keep Bracknell clean and to respect our open areas. The children were quick to catch on to how important it is not to drop litter which is good to know that they will grow up with this attitude of mind.”
Leader of Bracknell Town Council, Cllr Chris Turrell gave thanks to all those who organised and took part in the community event.
Bracknell Town Council would like to make this an annual event in the hope to gain more people to volunteer, support and expand year on year.
Bracknell Town Council would like to thank all those who helped and supported to make the event a success. It is about being part of the community and coming together to help improve the town we live in.
