The Great British Spring Clean

Shepway has answered Keep Britain Tidy's call to recruit litter heroes for the Great British Spring Clean.


There is a regular programme of litterpicks throughout the year - we help organise them and provide litter pickers, bags, and gloves form our award winning Community Store.

To be a super hero and help give their community a spring clean people just need to turn up and join in at one of these events.

  2. Etchinghill - 4 March. Meet 10am at the Village Hall.

We know that everybody won't be able to join these groups so this year we are also making litter pick packs available to individuals, families and small groups. Individual litter pick packs are available from the Front Desk at the Civic Centre in Folkestone - the public can just turn up and pick one up.

We have also posted a video on facebook to promote the individual litter packs. Feel free to share this on your social media channels. Thanks
