Ingol is set for a Spring clean during Thursday (11 April) afternoon.


Property management firm Places for People is organising the event as part of The Great British Spring Clean.

Litter picking will take place and is focused on plastic bottles and aluminium cans.

Head of neighbourhoods Mark Viggars said: “The Great British Spring Clean is a fantastic opportunity for colleagues from across Places for People to work alongside customers to improve their local area. This project is part of our approach and commitment of managing and providing places where people want to live – and echoes our ethos of building communities that thrive, today and in the long term.

“And it’s not just Preston we’re working on either, this is a nationwide project of huge importance for us and we’re arranging litter picks, estate cleanups and a range of other environmental improvements in 11 other UK towns and cities. We look forward to helping customers and colleagues work together to ensure great success at the cleanup events.”
