Handy helpers wanted for Astbury Mere Spring Clean

Congleton In Bloom are back in force for the next Congleton Community Tidy on Saturday 2 April 2022. The group are calling for volunteers to help make Astbury Mere Country Park cleaner and greener. The tidy is part of the ‘Great British Spring Clean’ run by Keep Britain Tidy. Back for its seventh year the campaign takes place from 25 March – 10 April 2022.  

Volunteers can do as little or as much as they want during this time, there will be a variety of  activities which will include: tree planting, litter picking and weeding. Those joining in are advised to wear clothing appropriate to anticipated weather conditions and sensible footwear. Everything else; Hi-Viz vests, litter pickers, sacks, gloves and all equipment will be provided.

Congleton In Bloom Chair, Cllr David Brown said: “The In Bloom team look forward to welcoming new and existing volunteers. We have a busy year ahead as Congleton has been selected to represent the North West region in the RHS Britain in Bloom UK Finals in the Large Town category! So we are trying to get as many members of the public to join in the monthly volunteer mornings as possible. Congleton In Bloom relies on community participation and the session will be a great way to do something positive, help to make a difference and meet new people at the same time.”
