Paisley FM 107.5 supports The Big Spring Clean

The Big Spring Clean is back, and this year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever. It runs from Friday 29 March until Tuesday 30 April 2019.

Last year more than 1,000 volunteers collected over 500 bags of rubbish over one weekend, this year the Big Spring Clean will tackle the whole month of April!

So grab your litter picker and get set to make your neighbourhood a little brighter.
