The charity Keep Britain Tidy has announced a month-long Great British Spring Clean campaign for 2019.

The initiative aims to encourage individuals, community organisations, businesses and government to work together to collect and safely dispose of single-use plastic from streets, parks and beaches.

In 2018 more than 370,000 people took part in 13,500 events around the UK.  Despite the wintry weather caused by the ‘Beast from the East’, a small group of committed volunteers held a litter picking event in Wanstead.

According to organisers, another initiative is planned as part of the Great British Spring Clean 2019.  Local residents, community groups and businesses have been advised to reserve Saturday 23 March 2019 if they wish to take part.
