The Great British Spring Clean 2024

12th March 2024

As the daffodils bloom and the days grow longer, it’s time for a seasonal refresh. And what better way to embrace the spirit of renewal than by participating in the Great British Spring Clean from 15th to 31st March 2024?

This nationwide initiative, organised by Keep Britain Tidy, aims to bring communities together to tackle litter and improve our local environment. And right here in Tunbridge Wells, The Pantiles is poised to play a pivotal role in this commendable effort.

Threats to Wildlife and Ecosystems

Did you know that every year, an estimated 2.25 million pieces of litter are dropped in the UK alone? This staggering figure not only tarnishes the beauty of our surroundings but also poses serious threats to wildlife and ecosystems. From plastic bottles to cigarette butts, litter pollution is a pressing issue that demands our attention.

Fortunately, initiatives like the Great British Spring Clean provide an opportunity for individuals and communities to take action. Last year, over 560,000 volunteers participated in the event nationwide, collectively collecting more than 1.1 million bags of litter. These impressive numbers underscore the power of collective effort in combating litter and fostering cleaner, greener communities.
