Coronation Clean-UpLoathe litter? Groaning at graffiti? Disheartened by dirt? Us too!
The Town Council’s grounds team, Wiltshire Council, idVerde contractors and shops and businesses do an amazing job emptying overflowing litter bins, sweeping pavements and caring for our open spaces but they can’t keep a whole town clean on their own.
More than ever before, residents are contacting us to say they’re fed up with the sight of graffiti and litter around the town.
In a few weeks when the weather improves we’ll be making an appeal to residents, schools, partners and businesses to join forces with us to create “Super Clean Teams” to clean up Marlborough and Manton ahead of the Coronation of King Charles III on 6 May. We’ll be removing graffiti, picking up litter and generally sweeping, weeding and tidying our town.
We’ll publish more details towards the end of February when we’ll be looking for you to highlight ‘hotspots’; for groups or individuals who would be willing to pledge some time, and asking partner organisations to get involved.
For now, we simply want to let you know that we’re responding to your comments and aiming to take some action. Please save the dates and look out for more news towards the end of February.
