NewsCarlton Spring Clean Litter Pick (19-03-17)
The annual Spring Clean Litter pick took place on Sunday 19th March 2017, and resulted in the collection of this heap of rubbish. Altogether 26 volunteers took part - 14 on the day and 12 during the preceding week. The Group was very pleased to find that in general there was less litter this year.
The Spring Clean Liter Pick has been an annual event in Carlton since 1992, and the Keep Carlton Tidy Group was founded in 2004. As usual, prizes were awarded for the most interesting, most useful and most disgusting items recovered.
The pick was registered with the Great British Spring Clean event, and was supported by Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council who provided sacks, loaned extra equipment, and took away all the rubbish.
