Join the ‘Great British Spring Clean’ at Castle Hill

Our Castle Hill Ranger Julian Brown is asking for willing volunteers to join him in the #BigBagChallenge during the ‘Great British Spring Clean’ campaign.

What is the Great British Spring Clean’ campaign?

The national campaign by Keep Britain Tidy aims to encourage everyone to pick up as much litter as they can between 25 March and 10 April.

When is the Castle Hill litter pick?

The #BigBagChallenge litter pick will take place at Castle Hill, Huddersfield on Friday 25 March from 10am to 12noon and is open to everyone. All equipment including disposable gloves, sanitiser and litter pickers will be provided.

Councillor Naheed Mather, Cabinet Member for Environment commented:

“We were delighted with the response to our last litter pick in February. 30 willing volunteers turned up on the day and worked incredibly hard to help us collect 23 bags of rubbish.

It’s disappointing that some visitors continue to leave litter behind at our much-loved landmark, but the community response in helping us in our endeavour to keep it safe and clean is inspiring.

“A huge thank you to all who took part and please do join us again at our next event during the Great British Spring Clean.”

How to book your place

To make sure there is enough equipment on the day for everyone who would like to take part, Castle Hill Ranger Julian Brown is asking that anyone wanting to join the litter pick should book a place in advance by contacting him on Tel: 07870 570914 or via email at
