BID City Centre Spring Clean - NEW DATE

8th March 2018

This Spring, Lancaster Business Improvement District (BID) is making a big effort to 'Spring Clean' the city centre of Lancaster, to ensure it remains a clean and attractive place to live, work and do business.

Lancaster BID has rescheduled the City Centre Clean Up efforts after being thwarted by the Beast from the East. The BID team, along with representatives from local businesses will now be out and about on the city streets on Friday 23rdMarch from 9.30 to 10.30am.

This activity forms a part of the national 'Great British Spring Clean' campaign, organised by Keep Britain Tidy. This nationwide campaign aims to bring people from across the county together to clear up the litter that blights our cities, villages and beaches, with the aim to inspire 400,000 people to get active and help clear up rubbish during March.

Rachael Wilkinson, Lancaster BID Manager, said "By getting hands on with helping to clean the city streets we will make an immediate and noticeable improvement to the city centre. We are encouraging everyone to get involved with this campaign, to show what can be achieved when everybody pitches in."

"This week of activity is by no means a one off. We have worked in partnership with Lancaster City Council to fund additional street cleansing within the city centre for the past three years, and will look to continue this in the future. We also hope that this campaign will help restore pride in the city centre and businesses will continue to help out, in any small way they can, to keep the streets looking attractive."

Anyone wishing to join the Lancaster BID City Centre Clean Up is advised to contact info@lancasterbid.orgor phone 01524 590650. The clean-up will start from Horse Shoe Corner at 9.30am and litter pickers, gloves and sacks will be provided for everyone who takes part.
