Keep Britain Tidy!

Litter is a problem in many of our communities, and has been of particular concern for residents in Prudhoe. I am therefore pleased to learn that residents on Neale Street in Prudhoe have finally had some wasteland cut back on land backing onto their homes that had become overgrown and was attracting rats. Northumberland Estates, who own the land, have been out to clear the area in the last week, so there is finally some good news for the street’s residents.

We all have a part to play in making sure that our local areas are kept clean and tidy. The Great British Spring Clean, Keep Britain Tidy’s annual national clean-up, takes place on 2nd-4th March, and individuals, families, schools, businesses and groups can get involved to clean up our local streets, parks and beaches. Last year the campaign saw more than 300,000 volunteers collect 70,000 wheelie bins of rubbish over one weekend, and this year they want more people than ever to get involved. Littering has a devastating impact on our countryside and wildlife. I will be out and about next weekend helping to clean up our streets- it would be great if you joined me!
