Member of Parliament for Clwyd South, Simon Baynes MP, is encouraging Clwyd South residents to get involved with Keep Britain Tidy’s ‘Great British Spring Clean’ campaign.
The Great British Spring Clean will take place this from 28th May to 13th June 2021, and aims to help clear Britain’s streets, beaches, parks and countryside from litter. Mr Baynes has praised the campaign which will see members of the public from across the four nations of the UK help create a cleaner and greener Britain, whilst adhering to COVID-19 restrictions.
Litter can have devastating impacts for the environment, our seas, animals and wildlife, who can get injured due to litter. However, Mr Baynes has praised the campaign for not only helping the environment, but also for the role it will also play in improving people’s physical and mental wellbeing.
Simon Baynes MP said:
“This last year we have seen the importance of outdoor areas and green spaces. Not only is this campaign a great opportunity to get some fresh air and help the environment, but it is also incredibly beneficial for both our physical and mental health.
“We have some beautiful green areas in Clwyd South and I would encourage residents in Clwyd South to take a look at the Keep Britain Tidy website and see if they’re able to pledge some of their time to make our community as clean as it can be.”
More information regarding the #MillionMileMission which is due to take place late spring can be found on the Keep Britain Tidy website, where you’re also able to buy litter picking kits, pledge the amount of time you’re willing to help and also find the latest guidance on how to do this in a COVID secure way.
