Staff from McDonald’s restaurant and the district council in Grantham are teaming up with local businesses and community groups for a town centre litter pick.

Volunteers will meet at the restaurant on Friday, June 6, to clear rubbish from London Road, High Street and Brook Street before finishing at Wyndham Park.

As well as staff from its waste and recycling and economic development teams, the council will provide gloves, rubbish bags and litter-pickers to volunteers on the day.

Equipment to help with the clear-up has also been donated by Grantham Business Club, Boots, Boyes, Barrowby Community Group and Belton Garden Centre.

McDonald’s have invited other retailers in Grantham to sign up to the session and are encouraging those contacted to confirm their availability as soon as possible.

McDonald’s Grantham manager Zara Thomas said: “We already litter pick areas around the restaurant and want to hear from other businesses and members of the community who want to help give Grantham a cleaner look this summer.”

Stuart Pigram, chairman of Grantham Business Club said: “Making the town as litter free as possible can only be good for business.”

Businesses and community groups wishing to help the effort should call Zara on 01476 565249 or email 01233@uk.mcd.com
