Great British Spring Clean: weather update

Great British Spring Clean 2018

Update on the Great British Spring Clean.

Adverse weather conditions: please take note of the below safety notice issued by Keep Britain Tidy  

Given the current weather forecast for the week ahead - we advise all participants to keep an eye on the weather and if there is any doubt about safety then do not go ahead with your event.

The Met Office has predicted snow falls and freezing temperatures across parts of the country. Ice presents a risk of slipping and freezing temperatures make for uncomfortable conditions with potential for hypothermia. In addition, heavy snow makes litter picking impossible.

Current weather warnings run through to Saturday 3 March with yellow alerts in force for the Wycombe district.

We plan to include all events undertaken up to and including 25 March within the Great British Spring Clean campaign. If you were planning to do an event, there is still plenty of time to rearrange it for when the weather is better.

If you are planning to rearrange your event, we will extend all loans of litter pickers until after your event is completed.
