Thornbury Litter Busters were once again pleased to welcome MP Luke Hall to their Big Spring Clean event on Saturday 7th April.
Having had to delay the original Big Spring Clean due to the snowy conditions earlier this year, the event resumed this month and was a huge success. The Thornbury Litter Busters have continued to carry out crucial work in the local community, helping to keep the town clean and free from harmful litter.
Event organiser, Kim Webber said, “Thank you to everyone who gave their time to help tidy the town. The event was very well supported by group members, representatives from the Town Council and members of the public.”
Local MP Luke Hall expressed his delight in joining the group, and said, “It was great to catch up with the Thornbury Litter Busters and help out with their Big Spring Clean. The Litter Busters headed by Kim do a fantastic job in Thornbury and on behalf of the local community I thank them for their hard work and efforts.”
The MP added, “Together we can continue working towards a greener South Gloucestershire, which is litter-free.”
The Big Spring Clean follows the Government’s National Litter Strategy, which was published earlier this year. The new strategy aims to improve education about the hazards of litter, and provide local authorities with stricter penalties which can be issued to those caught littering.
