Help to improve the appearance of our district by signing up to take part in International Clean Up Mansfield Day.
The event, organised by Mansfield District Council, is in its fifth year and attracts participants from towns and cities called Mansfield in the USA and Australia as well as in the UK.
Individuals, schools, businesses, conservation and community groups are invited to join the Mayor, councillors and council staff on Friday 9 June. You can find out more and sign up online at the Education and community clean-ups page to take part in big or small activities that improve the local environment. These can include picking up litter, planting trees or bulbs, cleaning or painting your premises or anything else of your choice.
Plans are well underway for June's event with previous participants locally as well as in Pennsylvania in the USA, and in Victoria, Australia, having expressed an interest in being involved.
Cllr Andrew Tristram, Portfolio Holder for the Environment, said: "Our council staff including Street Cleansing and Parks teams do a great job all year round of keeping our district clean and looking good but this is your chance to get involved and help us to make a special concentrated effort to improve the area around where you live or work.
"There are lots of ways to get involved and they don't have to involve giving up lots of your time - you could pledge to pick litter on your walk to work or during your lunch break.
"Volunteering has lots of benefits including making a difference, being part of a community, meeting people and making new friends, and learning new skills. There's nothing to lose so sign up now!"
