Bracknell BID Tidy Days 2022


As part of the Keep Britain Tidy’s Spring Clean period, Bracknell BID organised Tidy Days over a two day period between 12pm and 2pm for Bracknell businesses and employees within the Southern and Western Business Area to take part in community litter picking events on their lunch break.

Bracknell BID organised Tidy Days to keep Bracknell Tidy, fulfilling the BID’s aims to develop amenities and schemes, benefits and events for those who work in the BID area to promote the feeling of community, pleasant surroundings, and a sense of well-being. The Tidy Days are part of the BID’s wider strategy in working to maintain and improve the general condition and appearance of roads, footpaths, cycleways and grass verges throughout the BID area, through BID funded vegetation cutbacks, maintenance and pest control throughout the BID. This included works at Longshot Lane, Cookham Road and Downmill Road.

The Tidy Days reached a significant area of the Bracknell BID area, cleansing Western Road, Western Trade Centre, Downmill Road, Cookham Road, Waterside Park, Farleymoor Lake, Easthampstead Road, MIll Lane, Oldbury, as well as the footpath on Mill Lane, the footpath on Oldbury to Downmill Road, and the adjacent woodland footpath by Longshot Lane.

Bracknell BID would like to thank everyone who participated in our Tidy Days, the two events had a great turnout from businesses in the Southern and Western Business Area with 24 participants volunteering over their lunch breaks. Over the two days, we collected 35 bags of litter and this has made a significant difference in keeping Bracknell tidy.

We would like to thank Bracknell Forest Council, John Lewis, Waitrose & Partners, Councillor Alvin Finch, Allegis Group and Greggs for supporting the Tidy Days. 

Bracknell BID organised Tidy Days over Wednesday 30th March and Thursday 31st March.
