EVESHAM residents are being urged to help spruce up the town by volunteering to take part in the Great British Spring Clean.

On Sunday, March 5 Evesham Town Council is hosting its own litter pick as part of a nationwide effort to mobilise communities to help make their towns litter free.

The last litter pick the Town Council organised collected more than 50 bags of rubbish from along the River Avon.

To get involved in the litter picking effort, residents are being invited to meet at the Town Hall between 10am and 11am. All equipment will be supplied by the Town Council and anyone under the age of 18 will have to be accompanied by an adult.

Mayor of Evesham, Coun Fred Kaler, urged the community to get involved to help make Evesham cleaner and more attractive for those who live and visit the town.

“Evesham is a beautiful place to live and it is spoiled by a small number of people who discard their rubbish without a care for others,” Coun Kaler said.

“Let’s all get together and collect as much litter as we can, for the good of the community.”

Following the litter pick, tea and cakes will be served in the Town Hall for all of those who volunteered.

For more information call the Town Clerk, Stuart Carter, on 01386 443322.

Coun Colin Tether is also hosting his own litter pick at 11am on Saturday, March 4. Residents are being invited to meet at the junction of Rynal Street with Leicester Grove.
