Bring on the spring clean

HEBDEN Royd Town Council is gearing up for its annual spring clean.

Organisers hope the community will be out in force on April 9 and 10 to help with activities such as litter picking and weeding.

Emma Housman, neighbourhood manager for Hebden Royd Town Council, said: "We are asking residents to think about how they could get involved.

"Maybe residents could clean up their street or a community group could raise sponsorship for cleaning up a certain area or for each bag of litter retrieved."

Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team will also be getting involved by helping to clean up hard-to-reach areas such as riverbanks and steep woods.
