OXCLEAN has begun its yearly drive to recruit spring clean volunteers - and hailed the rise of a new partner organisation in Abingdon, AbiBinit!

The OxClean event takes place in early March, but volunteers can now sign up for the initiative, which covers all of Oxford within the ring road.

Supported by Oxford Civic Society, around 100 groups - including various schools - normally get involved with the 12-year-old scheme.

AbiBinit!, a similar organisation covering the whole of Abingdon, has followed OxClean's lead to launch a similar initiative.

Organiser Helen Flynn says education is key and hopes to inspire others through action.
