On Saturday morning, four members of the Informed Choice team joined volunteers from Cranleigh in Bloom to take part in the Great British Spring Clean.
Martin, Andy, Nick and Lizanne grabbed a rubbish bag each and collected as much litter as possible from around the village, as part of a team of sixteen enthusiastic volunteers.
The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with one simple ambition; to bring together people from across the country to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and coastline.
In 2015, one enthusiastic individual – Melissa Murdoch – had an idea to get people from all walks of life together in cleaning up the rubbish that surrounds us.
Together, with Adrian Evans, Keep Britain Tidy, Country Life Magazine and a range of supporting partners the Clean for The Queen campaign inspired 250,000 people to get involved in local clean ups through March 2016.
During March 2017, the Great British Spring Clean aims to to inspire 500,000 people across the UK to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us.
Martin, who is Chairman of Cranleigh in Bloom, organised the Great British Spring Clean in Cranleigh, arranging for the volunteers to spend more than an hour collecting litter from around the village, including the Downs Link, Snoxhall Playing Fields, The Common and High Street.
The team collected more than 20 bags of litter from around Cranleigh, making a small contribution to improving the local environment for the enjoyment of all.
