Lindfield Spring Clean 2019

Published: 15 March 2019

Why not come and join us for our annual Spring Clean around the Village on the morning of Saturday 27th April? The Parish Council has organised a Spring Clean every year since 1999, when it started as an initiative of the Tidy Britain Group, and helpers find it to be a rewarding and worthwhile few hours. Volunteers meet in the King Edward Hall and are given tasks such as collecting litter from the areas in the village not covered by the normal street cleaning agencies. Street furniture, such as the posts around the Pond and the Common, always benefit from a wash down after the winter and cutting back vegetation in the footpaths is another job that can be tackled.

The Spring Clean will take place between 9.30am and 1pm. Any children taking part must be supervised by parents or adult group leaders if they are in groups from schools or youth organisations. Suggestions for areas in the village that might benefit from a little ‘TLC’ are always appreciated, particularly if you could let us know in advance to help with the planning. If there is a task you particularly want to tackle please let us know beforehand and we’ll save that job for you. Litter pickers and bags, buckets, detergent and cloths will be provided but you are asked to bring your own gloves - and wheelbarrows can be very useful for bringing back sacks full of litter.
