There's a communal clean-up session planned for Saturday, March 5. Meet at the Bandstand, in the Market Place at 10am.
Further to our earlier posts on this topic, we need to stress that materials will be provided. All you need to do is turn up in suitable clothing for the task ahead.
Ours is a pretty tidy town, but there are areas that North Lincolnshire Council can't cover as part of its routine cleaning operations.
Brigg Town Council and Brigg Town Business Partnership are involving in organising the March 5 event.
However, further tidying, involving the Women's Institute, will take place on Friday, March 4. And we gather there could be some more undertaken on Sunday, March 7.
North Lincolnshire Council, the unitary authority, tells us that community groups across the district are now gearing up, ready for the big clean-up weekend, as part of the Clean for The Queen campaign.
This is a nationwide initiative connected with Her Majesty's 90th birthday this year.
North Lincolnshire Council is supporting this campaign and encouraging local people and community groups to rally together. So far 16 community groups have signed up to take part in the big clean-up and more are expected to come forward.
There will be litter-picking in Scunthorpe, Messingham, Brigg, Belton, Worlaby, Bonby, Barton and Saxby "just to name a few."
Interested residents and community groups can still get involved. Even if you can’t make the big clean-up weekend, you can arrange your own clean-up.
If you would like to take part, contact neighbourhood services on 01724 297775 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. They can also offer support and advice; this includes everything from removing the rubbish you have collected to providing the litter picking equipment.
To take part in Clean for The Queen, please also register online at www.cleanforthequeen.co.uk where you can download the Clean for the Queen Guide, as well as advice and tips about how to join a group or to simply do your bit.
This campaign has been launched by Country Life magazine in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy to clear up Britain in time for The Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016.
The Queen is keen to get the ball rolling on what could be the UK’s largest clean-up operation in history.
The aim is to inspire a million people to take action and enjoy a few hours together litter picking to make the places where they live more enjoyable and instil a sense of pride in their communities.
An army of volunteers across the country will come together to clean up their local areas, which includes the special clean-up weekend from 4 to 6 March 2016.
All the litter charities across the country have come together to support the campaign. Also, a growing range of companies, land managers and associations and councils are now signing up to support it, including North Lincolnshire Council.
The council has agreed to co-ordinate the local events to ensure that activities are programmed into the national events. Officers have engaged with community groups, schools, charities and town and parish councils.
If every adult picked up just one piece of litter and put it in a bin, that would be more than 50 million pieces of rubbish disposed of. Imagine if everyone picked up at least one piece of litter every day for the next nine months.
"We can do it. We can all Clean for The Queen," says council spokeswoman Kirsty Westfield.
Coun Neil Poole, from Messingham, Cabinet member for Neighbourhoods at North Lincolnshire Council and Ridge Ward representative for the area including Scawby, said: “The council already supports various clean-up initiatives but this is set to be something quite spectacular as whole communities will come together across the country to take part in what is expected to be the biggest clean-up of all time.
“We already have 16 community groups taking part and we are working with other groups to get them involved. It is set to be a fantastic weekend that will highlight the brilliant community spirit we have in North Lincolnshire.
“Any community groups or people in North Lincolnshire that would like to take part, or organise a big clean-up, you still have time to get involved. Get in touch with us and we will help in any way we can."
Brigg Town Council usually undertakes a Spring clean in May (see picture above from 2013), but for 2016 that event is being combined with the tidy up next weekend.
