Businesses in Northampton will have the chance to help spruce up town centre streets as part of a dedicated tidy day held to mark the Great British Spring Clean.
The concerted clean-up campaign will see business owners team up with volunteers to get the town centre looking its best and make it even more appealing to visitors.
The event, which takes place from 9am to noon on Monday, April 4 and will get underway in Market Square, has been organised by Northampton Town Centre Business Improvement District (BID).
It forms part of a series of projects to tidy up Northampton town centre and follows two previous tidy days held last year which saw dozens of volunteers collect hundreds of bags of rubbish from known litter hot spots around the town centre.
Mark Mullen, Northampton Town Centre BID operations manager, said: “We always want to make sure Northampton is looking its very best and The Great British Spring Clean is the perfect opportunity to get everyone involved and playing their part in a town centre tidy up.
“We were delighted to see so many people join us for our tidy days last year and we look forward to another successful day, with rubbish removed from the streets and pavements and doorways left sparkling.
“If everyone makes a concerted effort to dispose of their rubbish in the right way our town centre can stay looking its beautiful best.”
Litter picking equipment will be provided for all who are able to attend and residents are encouraged to come along and lend a hand, alongside representatives from businesses, West Northamptonshire Council and Northampton Town Council to improve the look and feel of town centre streets and car parks.
