Are you a #LitterHero? South Woodford Society urges residents to join local spring clean


The Great British Spring Clean 2020 runs from 20 March to 13 April, and the South Woodford Society will be taking part in the initiative.

“We ran our first litter pick of the year on a Sunday in February. Unfortunately, the eight hardy souls who turned out were rather hindered by Storm Ciara! We collected eight bags of rubbish and some recycling before we were beaten by the weather,” said a spokesperson. Last year, more than 560,000 #LitterHeroes from across the nation took part in the Great British Spring Clean.

“We will be planning another litter pick very soon, so make sure you are on our mailing list and check our social media for details. Together, we can make a difference. All our individual actions can help transform our country, creating cleaner streets, protecting wildlife and, ultimately, stopping the tide of plastic that is doing so much damage to our oceans. The Great British Spring Clean is about demonstrating that you love where you live.”
