Spring Clean 2019

29 Jul 2019

Earlier this year, during the 2019/20 Budget Full Council meeting, Leader of the council, Cllr Sharon Taylor reserved an additional £26,000 for a Spring Clean initiative on top of the existing budget to help with an intensive cleaning initiative in the town.

The Spring Clean provided the council with the opportunity to work with local communities and Green Space Volunteers to give additional attention to areas of the town which needed a bit more attention to look better.

Over ten schools and community groups took part in the initiative and over 185 people were involved across Stevenage. As part of the clean-up programme, the council developed a scheme to lend out litter picking equipment to constituted community groups who were then rewarded for taking part.
