Gloucestershire Echo - - BIG SUMMER -

» THIS sum­mer Glouces­ter­shire Live, along with the Cit­i­zen and Echo, is striv­ing to Keep Glouces­ter­shire Glo­ri­ous.

As part of our cam­paign we put a call out to reader to sub­mit grot spots in the county which were most in need of a clean up for us to tar­get.

Here is your chance to vote on where Glouces­ter­shire Live and our teon Saturdays in Au­gust, we want to clean up Glouces­ter­shire’s ne­glected and ig­nored public open spa­ces.

We will be armed with rub­bish bags (and re­fresh­ments for vol­un­teers), all we need to know is where do you want us to clean?

We are look­ing for five lo­ca­tions where we will host a Big Sum­mer Clean, on Au­gust 3, 10, 17, 24 and 31.

Se­nior edi­tor for Glouces­ter­shire Rachael Sugden said: “Our news­room is in­un­dated with let­ters, emails and mes­sages via so­cial me­dia about grot-spots across the county.

“In Au­gust, when we all should be able to be out­side, where we want to go, we want to make sure your favourite places are safe and pleas­ant.

“Lo­cal coun­cils are do­ing all they can with the funds they have - this is not a crit­i­cism of the au­thor­i­ties.

“This is about get­ting com­mu­ni­ties to come to­gether in their favourite public open spa­ces and make them a place they can be proud of.”
