Did you know that 100,000 Scots joined the campaign to make Scotland cleaner and greener in 2011?
That was part of the National Spring Clean organised by Keep Scotland Beautiful and this year’s Pencaitland Litter-pick on Sunday is part of the 2012 campaign.
Through National Spring Clean, Keep Scotland Beautiful encourages people to get together and help pick up litter from their neighbourhood each spring: a time of year when Scots traditionally give their homes a clean sweep and start spending more time outdoors again after a long winter.
Whilst our winter and early spring have been mild this year, we have had recent freezing overnight and quite a bit of rain. We’re hoping we won’t have either this Sunday.
National Spring Clean includes litter picks taking place over a two month period: 1st April – 31st May 2012, to make it more accessible to a wider number of participants.
On the 29th April it’s Pencaitland’s Annual Litter Pick Up. The aim is to start at around 2pm. All kids taking part (and bringing parents with them) will be in with a chance of winning a digital camera.
It’s just THREE days to Pencaitland’s Litter Pick-up…
