Litter picking event cleans up in South Kilburn
Young and old clear the streets of rubbish
Old and young joined together to prove they love where they live by clearing the streets of litter.
The mass event, which happened yesterday (Thursday) in Peel Precinct, South Kilburn, was organised by Brent Housing Partnership (BHP) as part of Keep Britain Tidy’s “Love Where You Live” campaign.
The crusade aims to get people to think about their communities and take action to reduce litter where they live, the places that they visit and the spaces they use.
Representatives from Keep Britain Tidy joined the large group which included BHP officers and school children to show their support of the project.
