Could where you live/work be the Cleanest Place in Britain? That’s the question facing judges who recently toured the finalists of the Clean Britain Awards, sponsored by Karcher UK.
The visits were the first of two in the keenly fought contest run by the British Cleaning Council (BCC) with 17 finalist *cities, towns and districts in the running to win the clean crown.
Judith West, Chairman of the BCC said: “Our judges made a thorough inspection of each area and found some very interesting findings. No stone will be left unturned in their next visits. They all have the opportunity to pull out all the stops now to prove to the rest of the UK that they may be the rightful winners of the Clean Britain Awards’ Cleanest City/Borough or District.”
On visits judges scrutinise streets, transport hubs, tourist facilities and parks to name a few of the locations they monitor for cleanliness and frequency/quality of cleaning activity.
Judith West said: “The general public must try their best to keep the streets of their dwelling place spick and span – there is now an excellent opportunity to show the judges how well they can fare. Winning the title of Cleanest City/Borough/District in the Awards could only serve to bolster the profile of any of these communities.”
Having presented to a panel of judges already in September, each finalist may now expect another visit from the judges but this time it won`t be announced, so to be in with a chance the streets need to be kept in tip top condition.
The competition finale is taking place on Tuesday 13th March 2007 at the Cleaning Show, NEC, Birmingham.
