Julian backs Great British Spring Clean

January 24, 2020

Julian has pledged his support for the UK’s biggest mass action environmental campaign, 2020’s ‘Great British Spring Clean’, organised by environment charity Keep Britain Tidy.

This will see up to 600,000 people act to clean up streets, beaches and parks across the country between 20th March and 13th April.

The campaign unites residents, community groups, local councils, and businesses in improving their neighbourhoods, and last year cleared up some 900,000 bags of rubbish.

After signing up, Julian Sturdy said: “I was delighted to join the Wombles in committing to give our community a good tidy up this spring, and I would encourage as many local residents as are able to support this important environmental campaign.

In North Yorkshire, we are lucky to inhabit one of the most beautiful parts of the country, which makes us especially aware of how easily the environment can be spoilt by unthinking human action.

I have long campaigned on keeping York tidy, taking action to highlight waste dumping in rural areas, and pushing back against the scourge of plastic waste since first entering local politics on Harrogate Borough Council in 2002.

I am now making plans to do my bit to blitz local litter in the weeks ahead.”
