Keep Swindon Tidy Day
The first Keep Swindon Tidy Day was held on January 2nd 2021. With a very difficult year for many in 2020, we wanted to start 2021 with positive, co-operative action on plastic and other pollution in Swindon.
Overall, 18 groups / organisations supported the day. Some pulled out of organising litter picks at the last moment due to heightened covid restrictions. Still, it was a very positive and well-supported day; a great start to the new year, with litter picks all over Swindon.
Thanks to the awesome people and organisations who participated in and supported the day!

Keep Swindon Tidy Day was in compliment with our poster making collaboration. We continue work on the campaign, with aspirations of Keep Swindon Tidy signs around the town for the spring.
Thanks to the Swindon Advertiser for their excellent coverage of the event.
