The Big Tidy Up celebrates second anniversary

Keep Britain Tidy is celebrating the second anniversary of launching The Big Tidy Up, which brings communities together to clean up their local areas.

To date, almost half a million people from school children to businesses and professional footballers  have taken part, with more than 12,000 Big Tidy Ups having taken place across England, from Penzance to Carlisle and from Norwich to Shrewsbury.

Keep Britain Tidy's chief executive Phil Barton said: "The Big Tidy Up is one way that people can come together easily and make a big difference to the place where they live, work or study."

"If people are fed up with litter in their neighbourhood and want to make their area better, they should go to www.thebigtidyup.org where they will find all the information they need to become part of England's Big Tidy Up."
