The Islands' Partnership is once again coordinating an islands-wide Spring clean of all Scilly's major beaches in readiness for the new season. Residents and businesses are being encouraged to “pick up a bag and make a difference” during the second Great Scilly Spring Clean taking place on Saturday 28th March and Sunday 29th March. 
“The Great Scilly Spring Clean began last year as a joint campaign by Scilly’s major stakeholders in response to the need to clean up the islands following the severe winter storms of 2013/2014,” says Amanda Pender, Tourism Coordinator. “This year, we are delighted that Isles of Scilly Travel is also getting involved alongside the Islands’ Partnership, The Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust, Council of the Isles of Scilly, Duchy of Cornwall and Tresco Island. The Great Scilly Beach Clean is all about making sure that our beautiful islands live up to visitors’ expectations as an outstanding tourism destination. What better way than to ensure our beaches are pristine for the start of the season?”
