Volunteers wanted for spruce up

A FIRST town centre spring clean has been organised.

Town centre manager Toyubur Rahman has arranged the two-day tidy-up around central Bognor Reigs on March 20 and 21 from 9am-4pm both days.

Volunteers are wanted to help to make the event a big success and get the town ready to welcome residents and visitors for Easter and the summer.

“Put on your old clothes, burn some calories, meet new people and help make your town centre a more welcoming place,” he said.

“You don’t have to be there all day. Any time you can give will be greatly appreciated.”

The town’s spruce up will be run from The Core business hub on Belnont Street.

Anyone who wants to help will be given bibs, bins, grabbers and gloves.

They will be assigned roles and locations to help with litter picking and removing rubbish and weeds.

Arun District Council is backing the event.

Tea and coffee and biscuits will be provided for helpers.

The weekend is part of a national campaign supported by Keep Britain Tidy, Association of Town and City Management, The Great British High Street, Stop the Drop, Campaign to Protect Rural England and the government.

The tidy up is one of several initiatives which Mr Rahman has staged since he began work last May.

He plans to follow his successful Christmas fair last December with a series of fairs during this year.
