The Great British Spring Clean

The Great British Spring Clean is a campaign with one simple ambition. To bring together people from across the country to clear up the litter that blights our towns, villages, countryside and coastline.

In 2015, one enthusiastic individual - Melissa Murdoch - had an idea to get people from all walks of life together in cleaning up the rubbish that surrounds us. Together, with Adrian Evans, Keep Britain Tidy, Country Life Magazine and a range of supporting partners the Clean for The Queen campaign inspired 250,000 people to get involved in local clean ups through March 2016. But we couldn't leave it there...

Through March 2017, we want to inspire 500,000 people to get outdoors, get active and help clear up the rubbish that lies around us. 

We're calling on individuals, community groups, charities, sports clubs, business, local authorities and many more to sign up and take part.

You'll join an ever growing band of people who have had enough of other people's litter, are willing to donate their time to help clear it up and want to see an end to littering.

Selsey is delighted to be taking part in this years Great British Spring Clean!

Our event is on 3rd March 2017
