Yeovil MP Marcus Fysh fully behind The Great British Spring Clean

This March Marcus Fysh MP is joining thousands of other #LitterHeroes to clean up this country.

Environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy’s annual national clean up – the Great British Spring Clean (2-4 March) is back – helping us all do our bit to reduce the litter blighting our country.

Last year the campaign saw more #LitterHeroes than ever collect a staggering 70,000 wheelie bins of rubbish over one weekend. More than 300,000 people got involved, cleaned up their local streets, parks and beaches, and had fun doing it.

This year we want even more people to get involved and we are delighted our campaign is being supported by Yeovil’s local MP Marcus Fysh, who is also encouraging his constituents across South Somerset to sign up now and get involved too.

Marcus Fysh MP said: “South Somerset it a beautiful part of the country and we should be very proud to live in our corner of the world. Making sure its clean and tidy is not only beneficial to our landscape visually, but to the environment too. I will be doing my bit between 2-4 March as part of The Great British Spring Clean – I hope as many people throughout South Somerset and beyond can contribute also.”

Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton said: “Littering is a serious issue that blights the beautiful beaches, countryside and cities of the UK. It also has a devastating effect on our wildlife.

“The Great British Spring Clean is an opportunity for everyone who cares about the rubbish scarring our country and threatening our seas to take a stand.”

Individuals, groups, families, schools, businesses and clubs can all sign up and make a difference. Register at www.keepbritaintidy.org/gbspringclean and let’s clean up our country.
