After months of organising, the Big Clean is almost here – just 4 more days, in fact, the 27 and 28th October!
The town team have been working with Optomen Productions and Mary Portas, along with project managers Mace, to organise a massive clean up and painting operation to rejuvenate Fore Street and surrounds.
Local companies have donated items needed for the weekend, and there are already over 100 volunteers – with more still needed! Whether you can do an hour or the whole weekend, everyone’s welcome.
Local cafes Bean and Fat Frog have decided to help make sure that along with food provided, they help keep the workers fed and watered. Bean are offering 20% off across the whole menu, across the whole weekend, and Fat Frog are doing buy one meal, get one half price or a free child’s meal with one adult meal.
The fun (and it’s not all work, there will be entertainment including live music and street dance!) starts on Saturday morning at 9.30am with everyone asked to gather on Fore Street.
The weekend is being filmed for Mary’s new show, due to air on Channel 4 in Spring next year.
