Fern Hoppers Join Great British Spring Clean

Brandon Fern Hoppers came out in force to support the national Great British Spring Clean campaign this weekend.

Organised by Brandon In Bloom‘s Gary Brocklehurst the Fern Hoppers joined in with the campaign by tidying up an area of the Brandon Country Park.

An impressive amount of litter was collected during just an hour of work by the volunteers including a discarded mattress and a suitcase along with all manner of other litter and general detritus.

On hand to record the efforts were a reporter and journalist from the Daily Mail who were featuring the area as part of their coverage of the national campaign.

It’s great to see the Fern Hoppers involved in the local community and helping to keep our wonderful forest environment clean and tidy!
