Steve Double, Member of Parliament for St Austell and Newquay will be joining volunteers to clean up in St Austell as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean.
The litter pick will take place in Boscoppa with volunteers assembling from 1300 on Saturday 23 March at Bishop Bronescombe School and then litter picking in the surrounding area.
All equipment will be provided by the St Austell Tidy Up Team, Clean Cornwall and Biffa.
Commenting, Steve said:
“I am delighted be joining residents from around the area to take part in a Keep Britain Tidy litter pick at Boscoppa.”
“I regularly take part in litter picks and beach cleans across our beautiful constituency and it’s great to see this movement to love where we live picking up pace both in Cornwall and across the whole country.”
“In my capacity as Chair of the Ocean Conservation All Party Parliamentary Group I have also worked for years with a number of organisations to lobby the government to introduce a range of measures to cut down on single use plastics, and am pleased to see these also being acted on.”
“I am looking forward to the litter pick on Saturday 23 March and encourage anyone who is interested to come along and join in!”
Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean aims to inspire around half a million people to join forces - in partnership with community organisations, businesses and councils - to collect and safely dispose of litter from our streets, parks and beaches, recycling as much as possible.
So join the Great British Spring Clean to stand together and declare that litter – which degrades the beauty of our environment and threatens to harm wildlife – is not acceptable.
