VIDEO: Downpour didn’t dampen enthusiasm for Spalding riverside blitz

Driving rain didn’t halt a planned riverside litter blitz in Spalding today (Saturday).

Hardy volunteers with the social group, Spotless Spalding, met by the flower beds at High Bridge as planned ... and carried on regardless.

Coun Jack McLean, who formed Spotless Spalding, said the rain wouldn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm for today’s litter pick.

The event is part of the nationwide Clean for the Queen campaign, spearheaded by Keep Britain Tidy as a salute to the monarch for her 90th birthday.

A similar clean-up was planned for the Monks House Playing Field area when Spalding in Bloom chairman, Coun Angela Newton, was due to join cubs at noon.
