Your chance to get fit and clean up your community
Are you looking for a new and exciting event that will help
young people get more involved in their community whilst boosting their fitness
at the same time?
Why not join the Big Tidy Up?
Run by Keep Britain Tidy, the Big Tidy Up is England’s
biggest ever clean up campaign. Taking part offers a great opportunity to get
young people out of the classroom and into their local environment. What’s more
it gives them the chance to develop their team-working skills, engage with the
local community and have some fun!
The Big Tidy Up has been a huge success since its launch in
September 2008, with over 10,000 groups registering to take part, resulting in
over 20,000 bags of rubbish being cleared. We will be launching our spring
campaign at the end of March so with the weather starting to warm up, there’s
no better time to get involved.
Taking part is completely free of charge and we’ll even send
you a kit to get you started on your litter pick. Simply register at the Big
Tidy Up website www.thebigtidyup.org
and we’ll send you your tidy up kit containing tabards, refuse sacks, posters,
stickers, badges and a tidy up information booklet.
We very much hope that you can support the Big Tidy Up. Here
are some of the ways young people can benefit from the scheme:
- Taking part in a Big Tidy Up gives young people something positive to do and
allows them to engage with the local community

events such as the Big Tidy Up
