‘Clean Our High Street’ funding announced

All local authorities across England will receive a share of a £9.75m budget for locally-led high street spring clean, the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has announced.

Councils in partnership with existing community groups will be able to use this one-off funding to support volunteers. They will be able to buy tools such as litter pickers, gloves and brushes and provide training for residents on how to remove graffiti or tackle fly-tipping, as well as organise events to encourage more families to get involved.

The full list of awards, which range from £4,342 for the City of London to £194,330 for Birmingham City Council, can be found at this LINK, while further details of the funding announcement can be found HERE.
