Bedminster Wilko to host Great British Spring Clean community event


The chairman of the Bedminster Business Improvement District is calling on local people and businesses to ‘be part of the pick’ for the 2019 Great British Spring Clean.

Taking place on Tuesday 9 April from 12:00 – 4:00pm the Great British Spring Clean aims to improve the environment right on our doorsteps. The event is part of the nationwide initiative led by the charity Keep Britain Tidy, and aims to inspire over 500,000 volunteers from businesses, community organisations and the general public to collect and safely dispose of litter from British streets, parks and beaches.

One of the businesses involved in the 2019 Great British Spring Clean is household goods specialists Wilko and Simon Dicken, Bedminster BID chairman and store manager of the East Street Wilko, will be rolling up his sleeves to get behind this campaign.

Simon had this to day: “I am incredibly proud to support The Great British Spring Clean at a local level here in Bedminster, as well as a citywide capacity. Outside of Bedminster, the stores at Clifton, City Centre, Knowle and Avonmeads will all be getting involved in the Great British Spring Clean.

 “Wilko regional manager Sian John and talent and development officer, Emma Gravell, from the Wilko head office will be taking part and we’d love to see other local Bedminster and Bristol businesses and residents get involved on the 9th.”

Bristol Waste will also be supporting the Great British Spring Clean, by providing litter picking kits for volunteers. For more information on the Great British Spring Clean and to sign up to participate in the Bedminster clean-up, visit
