Great British Spring Clean at Hillyfields

Keep Britain Tidy are promoting the Great British Spring Clean 2019 as the country’s biggest mass-action environment campaign between 22 March – 23 April to help improve the environment on our doorsteps. They are aiming to inspire 500,000 people to join forces – in partnership with community organisations, businesses and the government – to collect and safely dispose of litter from our streets, parks and beaches, recycling as much as possible.

On Saturday 13 April,  six Medway Soroptimists joined in with members of the community along with local councillors at Hillyfields in Gillingham to take part in the Litter Pick organised by Medway Council.  Everyone involved were committed to stand together and declare that litter pollution, including single-use plastic – which degrades the beauty of our environment and threatens to harm wildlife – is not acceptable.’
