Lowestoft residents are being encouraged to help clean up the streets by taking part in a ‘community clean-up’ event taking place later this week.

On Thursday 18 April, a ‘Town Centre Spring Clean’ will take place in Lowestoft organised by the East Suffolk Communities Team in partnership with Lowestoft Rising, Lowestoft Town Council, East Suffolk Norse, Community Action Suffolk and Lowestoft Vision.

Volunteers are asked to meet at the town centre entrance to the Britten Centre at 8.45am to help litter pick the local area, supported by local business representatives, community groups and Norse staff, who will also be tackling chewing gum and graffiti where possible as part of street cleansing work. In addition, benches in the town centre will be repainted and planters refreshed.

Volunteers are required for the clean up - litter picking equipment will be provided. If you can spare some time to help, please contact Rachel Tucker on 01502 523111 or rachel.tucker@eastsuffolk.gov.uk.
