What do you think when you see litter and rubbish dumped on the street, around your school grounds, local park or playground? Do you want to do something about it? Then why not join the big spring clean- Northern Ireland’s largest volunteering campaign aimed at cleaning up local areas and improving our environment.

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council are encouraging schools, businesses, youth and community groups to get involved during the month of April 2016 by organising a local clean up.

If you are an eco-school, the big spring clean is a good opportunity to include the clean-up as part of your school’s action plan.

It’s easy to get involved. It doesn’t matter how small or big your event is and you can choose where and when it takes place.
