After the phenomenal success of this year’s Great British Spring Clean, I was invited to a celebration event, with special guest Kirstie Allsopp, at the Palace of Westminster on Tuesday May 2nd, 2017. This year’s campaign saw 303,125 volunteers across the country clean up an astonishing 513,060 bags of rubbish – enough to fill 70,000 wheelie bins from our streets, parks, beaches and countryside. Our Crouch End Tidy Up in March contributed to this. Flying the flag for Crouch End, I was joined by a range of volunteers, business leaders, local authority representatives and schools. This was a great opportunity to swap stories and hear about Keep Britain Tidy’s plans for The Great British Spring Clean, 2018. Next year the campaign will be bigger and better. What an inspiring day! In the meantime, I have organised a second Crouch End Tidy Up as part of the Crouch End Festival. Please join us Sunday 11th June at 11am. We are meeting at our iconic Crouch End Clocktower. I have created a Litter Style Scavenger Hunt for children and Dunn’s Bakery will be kindly be providing baked goods for any Litter Heroes that attend. All welcome. Let’s make Crouch End sparkle. See you there!
Continuing with championing community kindness, we are teaming up with the Crouch End Festival to run ‘Random Messages of Kindness’ please get involved! We want to start a new idea – leaving messages in any place to be discovered. In an envelope, a folded piece of paper, a small box…….anything goes. Put in some kinds words, a drawing, thoughts or even a gift or sweet. And remember to add #KindivalN8 so people can share their find on Twitter or Instagram. Please get your creative minds into gear and sprinkle a little Crouch End Kindness.
