Nominate a local “grot spot”

Sunday 6 March at 11 am
NorthWestTWO Cricklewood Clean Up.

As part of the Clean for The Queen campaign, nominate local grot spots around the UK. At the end of January an expert panel will select 12 of these grot spots to receive a clean up – from the professionals at Karcher, Helping Hand. There will be opportunities for local people to come and support on the day.

Please our Keep Britain Tidy app which can be downloaded online for apple and android smartphones. Alternatively use twitter (incorporating the handle @cleanforthequeen) or email

Whichever entry method you use please ensure your provide

  • A photo of the grot spot
  • A precise description of its location
  • A short statement about why it should be cleaned up
  • A contact email address (so that we can contact you in the event that your site is selected for a clean up.


The Cricklewood Town Team are volunteer residents with representatives from most of the local groups in Cricklewood, with the aim of improving the neighbourhood we live and work in. We come together to arrange events and projects but we also undertake individual interests. A lot of effort is going into trying to clean up the Town Centre.  Many of the grot spots are private land, with absentee landlords so the Councils end up using their limited resources in trying to clean up these problem (flytipping) areas at a cost.  Take the alleyways off Cricklewood Lane, these are private land and the challenge is finding the landlords, as many are sub let, then trying to get the landlords to respond.  One of these alleyways the residents/landlords have funded and installed a gate which is the ideal solution but not obligatory.
