The grimy corners of the borough will be given a spring clean this month.

Councillors schools and residents will be donning boots and rolling up their sleeves to get stuck into litter picks, fly-tips, graffiti and dirty pavements as part of Islington’s spring clean.

Nag’s Head town centre, Finsbury Park, Caledonian Road and Archway will all be targeted during the initiative.

Cllr Claudia Webbe, Islington Council’s executive member for environment and transport said: “We are committed to improving the environment of our town centres for the thousands of residents, businesses and workers who live in, trade from or commute through them.

“We are getting the whole community involved in our clean-ups because together we can make a difference.

“Residents who have long wanted a local grot spot tackled or would like to join in the spring clean, can go online to find out more.”

Clean Up Nag’s Head Week runs from March 2 to 8 to and is followed by Clean Up Finsbury Park Week, March 9 to 15; Clean Up Archway Week, March 16 to 22 and Clean Up Caledonian Road Week, March 23 to 29.
