Residents join Great British Spring Clean

As part of the national Great British Spring Clean initiative, Tadpole Garden Village residents gathered on Sunday 7th April to take part in a clean-up.

The #GBSpringClean campaign encourages communities 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.

And TGV residents certainly did their bit with a determined effort on Sunday morning, scouring hedgerows, ditches and the edges of the lakes for a variety of rubbish.

Resident Tim Harris, who helped organise the event alongside Chris Tanner (Community Mobiliser), commented: “Thank you to everyone who came out to help Spring Clean the Village. From what we picked up, it looks like it was mostly accidental litter from the bi-weekly pre-recycling storms! We filled around 15 to 20 bags and it’s something we will look to do again to ensure Tadpole Garden Village retains the look and feel of a community we are proud of.”

To date, over 532,205 people have taken part in the Great British Spring Clean campaign, with more details available here.
