Steve Double MP backs country’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign

Steve Double, Member of Parliament for St Austell and Newquay has pledged his support for this year’s Great British Spring Clean, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.

The campaign, which runs from March 20th to April 13th, will see up to 600,000 people taking action to clean up streets, parks and beaches across the country.

The Great British Spring Clean, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, brings together individuals, community organisations, businesses and councils to show they love where they live and in 2019 more than half a million #LitterHeroes collected more than 900,000 bags of rubbish.

Commenting Steve said:

“I am always delighted to support the good work of Keep Britain Tidy, and think the values they promote encourage positive action and community togetherness.”

“I look forward to organising my third Great British Spring Clean event in Mid-Cornwall in the coming months, in conjunction with Biffa and local councillors and will put up more information when I have it.”

Commenting, Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton OBE said:

“The overwhelming response to last year’s Great British Spring Clean showed that there are many hundreds of thousands of people out there who love where they live and are prepared to take action to make it better for themselves, their families and their communities.

“Litter is an issue that affects every corner of the country and, regardless of politics, the Great British Spring Clean is a campaign everyone can get behind. It is fantastic to have the support of Steve to help us reach our target of getting 600,000 people out, taking action to clean up every corner of the country.”
