The Town Centre Business Improvement District calls for town centre businesses and volunteers to join forces to give Bournemouth a spring clean on 2 May 2018.
Following a postponement due to bad weather, Bournemouth Town Centre BID has now confirmed a new date for the Big Bournemouth Clean Up. The event aims to tidy up and prepare Bournemouth’s town centre for the May Bank Holiday. Willing volunteers are asked to join the Town Centre BID Rangers and the Dorset Devils on Wednesday 2nd May from 11.00 am to 1pm, as they unite again to spruce-up Bournemouth in time for the tourist season.
The Big Bournemouth Clean Up is an initiative launched by the Town Centre BID, a not for profit company working on behalf of the businesses in Bournemouth town centre. After the huge success of last year’s clean up, the Town Centre BID is rallying businesses and the public to once again join forces and restore pride in the town centre by making it litter-free.
The volunteer-led environmental initiative will be clearing up some of Bournemouth’s most littered streets, starting from Horseshoe Common, outside Turtle Bay, and continuing onto Old Christchurch Road. The group will be working its way through the town centre, covering Lansdowne to the Triangle.
The Town Centre BID’s ‘Clean and Green’ programme covers a range of activities, including a dedicated cleaner for Bournemouth town centre, fly tipping removal and a number of projects to improve the look and feel of Bournemouth town centre. All activities are over and above the service provided by the local council and aim to help Bournemouth town centre to effectively compete with other centres across the UK.
Paul Kinvig, Chief Operating Officer at Town Centre BID, said:
“With the weather rapidly improving, we’re ready to give the town centre a good clean before the May Bank Holiday and we would be delighted to see representatives from town centre businesses as well as members of the public join forces with the Rangers to make our town centre area litter free. Litterpicking equipment will be provided so please don’t hesitate to get involved!”
If you would like to get involved, contact the Town Centre BID on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01202 296343.
The BID is an independent, not-for-profit company with a voluntary board of directors drawn from a range of businesses in the BID area. To find out more about the Bournemouth Town Centre BID, visit www.towncentrebid.co.uk.
