Believe in Gloucester – Big Clean
Help to clean up the city centre in time for the Gloucester History Festival this September.
As part of the City Council's Big Clean campaign, residents and businesses are being urged to join forces to come out and clean up their patch in time, before the start of Gloucester History Festival which runs from 7th – 20th September.
To get people started council officers will be working with volunteers, businesses and residents in the city centre to lend a hand to spruce up the city as visitors descend on the 7th September for the Gloucester Day Parade that marks the start of the festival.
Equipment will be provided to those who can lend a hand for as little as long or possible.

The team of volunteers will hopefully be painting over graffiti, cleaning the benches, litter picking and weeding as well as some simple maintenance around a number of locations.
Anyone interested is asked to come along to the meeting point at the Cross at the centre of the Gates Street between 10.00am and 3.00pm on Friday 6th September.
Councillor Sajid Patel, Cabinet Member for Environment said: "Days like these are a great opportunity for residents and businesses to come together and help make a difference for the benefit of a neighbourhood, or even the city centre as in this case.
" It is also hoped that clean up days such as this will help raise more awareness of the issues of littering and fly-tipping and ensure people act more responsibly.
"These cleanup days not only help tidy an area up in the short term, but also build pride, and makes people realise how they can help make a positive impact in their communities."
