Keep Britain Tidy’s Big Tidy Up

Alderney and Uncle Bulgaria with a litter-picking girlThe Wombles have reunited with Keep Britain Tidy to support The Big Tidy Up throughout October.

They’ll be out and about at a number of locations around the country, helping to tidy up. More details will be announced soon.

Keep Britain Tidy is 60 years old in 2014, and this year’s Big Jubilee Tidy Up will be the biggest-ever litter pick.

The aim is to get thousands of people cleaning up their communities and understanding that small actions can be the start of big changes.

Some of the Waitrose stores up and down the country will be offering support to Big Tidy Up groups as well.
