Join the Great British Spring Clean


The Great British Spring Clean 2024, run by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy, is a mass action campaign that will take place from 15-31 March.

It brings together individuals, community organisations, businesses and councils to make a difference to the environment on our doorstep.

They are calling on you to pledge on Keep Britain Tidy’s website to pick a bag or more of litter, helping make a huge difference to the environment.

Whether you choose to take part in your lunch break, as part of a team building day, or with your family at the weekend, Penrith Businesses can take part in the campaign by: 

  • Making a pledge to pick up a bag of litter – or more – as an individual or with a group at 
  • You can also make a fun pledge, if you wish, to support the charity’s platinum anniversary such as picking 70 items, 70 bags, or spending 70 minutes in the great outdoors litter-picking

You can help make some noise on social media with the hashtag #GBSpringClean and #BigBagChallenge

On behalf of Penrith BID and our friends at Keep Britain Tidy, thanks in advance for your support to give Penrith a Great British Spring Clean!
