Romford BID has organised for the clean-up to be held on Wednesday, 26 July between 10am – 12pm, with judging for the annual competition taking place the next day.
The BID has been selected as a finalist in the 2023 RHS Britain in Bloom Awards, which is the UK’s largest community gardening competition. The town is a finalist in the BIDs, Town Centres & City Centres category and up against Darlington and Harrogate BID.
As part of the competition, the BID will be looking to impress the judges with their efforts to improve the local area, including the installation of hanging baskets, planters, raised beds, community gardens and living walls encouraging sustainability, helping wildlife prosper, and making some areas of the town much more appealing and enticing for local residents to enjoy.
Gloves, bags, and necessary equipment will be provided by the BID on the day of the litter pick up with residents asked to meet in front of St Edward’s Church at 10am ahead of the task.
Romford BID Director, Julie Frost said: “We want the town to look its very best so please, if you are available, come and join us clean up Romford on 26 July.
“Whether you’re a seasoned litter picker or trying it for the first time, all are welcome to participate. The more, the merrier!”
