The annual Keep Welshpool Tidy Week got underway yesterday, organised by the town council in coordination with Keep Wales Tidy.
The aim of the week is for local groups, clubs and residents to take a proactive approach in ‘tidying up’ the town.
Anybody interested in getting involved are encouraged to attend the organised events during the week:
Yesterday (Monday) around 15 people, including councillors, Montgomeryshire AM Russell George and members of the public got the week underway with a litter pick around the town and at the Maesydre Recration Ground.
Tuesday, March 14: Wild meadow planting at the Tourist Information Centre, meeting at 10am.
Sunday March 19: ‘Community Spring Clean Day’ to carry out numerous cleaning tasks around the town. Meeting at the Tourist Information Centre at 10am to finish at 12 noon.
“Alternatively, choose an area of the town which you believe needs a ‘tidy’, and tackle the problem at a time which best suits, but please register your interest with Welshpool Town Council, on email@example.com,” said a spokesperson.
