Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council is once again backing Keep Britain Tidy’s national Great British Spring Clean campaign that is aiming to get half a million people out and about cleaning up their local communities.   The Great British Spring Clean Campaign for 2019, will take place from 22nd March to 23rd April. As in previous years the Town Council is looking for individuals, community groups and businesses across the town to support the campaign by organising their own clean up event.   Last year’s Great British Spring Clean saw many community litter picks take place throughout the Royal Town of Sutton Coldfield.  Groups included Friends of New Hall Valley and Rectory Park, Banners Gate Forum, Wylde Green Neighbourhood Forum and Active Citizens Group for Four Oaks.   Anyone wanting to help Sutton Coldfield be a cleaner and greener place in which to live and work is encouraged to contact the Town Council, who can help by providing litter pickers, gloves and bags to use on the day. Events will also be shared on social media, so individuals can join a litter pick near them.   Chief Executive of Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council Olive O’Sullivan: “There are many community minded people in our town who I know will want to organise their own clean up events in their street or outside their business. We really want to support these efforts both by practically providing equipment, and by promoting and celebrating their hard work.   “As we start to plan our Heart of England in Bloom entry for 2019, we will be judged as much on community involvement and a litter free town as we are on beautiful floral displays. We are very keen to support this initiative, to keep our Royal town looking at its best.”   Last year, over 370,000 volunteers joined forces at over 13,000 events across the UK to take a stand against litter. The campaign encourages volunteers, community groups and businesses to help improve the environment through targeting litter and particularly plastic waste.   For more information or to take part please call Richard Upton at the Town Council on 0121 663 1765 or you can email   The national campaign is organised by Keep Britain Tidy and there are lots of useful tools and information to help event organisers – see
