Tamworth community litter pick (10/03/2018 10:00 - 14:00)

Tamworth Castle Grounds , RIver Drive, Tamworth



TAMWORTH residents are being encouraged to grab a litter picker and a black bag and join in a community event that has been organised as part of this year’s Great British Spring Clean.

The Keep Britain Tidy campaign, running this March, aims to bring people across the country together to help tidy our streets, parks and countryside.

In Tamworth, a community litter pick has been organised to clean in and around the Castle Grounds on Saturday, March 10, between 10am and 2pm, and members of the public are invited to come and lend a hand.

Volunteers from Tamworth Borough Council’s Street Scene team, Wild About Tamworth and Tame Valley Wetlands have already signed up to the event and are hoping they will be joined by lots of community-spirited residents to give the area a good spring clean.

The event will focus on areas around the pleasure grounds, the SnowDome and the ‘egg’ island. This will extend work which was carried out during a recent restoration of the Borrowpit Lake filter-bed, delivered by the Tame Valley Wetlands Landscape Partnership Scheme, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Environment Agency. This project saw the removal of silt, vegetation, litter and thousands of plastic bottles from the vital filtration system.
