Middlewich Clean Team was founded in 2013 by Janet Chisholm when she recruited a voluntary group of over 200 Middlewich residents who came together with a vision to develop and promote a culture of pride in the town and the community.

Since those early days the Middlewich Clean Team has been prolific in encouraging and contributing to making Middlewich a more pleasant place to be. 

As well as organising litter picks, we have encouraged and supported individuals to help us in whatever way they can, whether by picking litter in their immediate area, joining group litter picks or by highlighting problem areas. We have worked with many groups and organisations, including the Middlewich Town Council, the Cheshire East Council, British Waterways, Middlewich schools, Middlewich businesses, Middlewich Guardian and Middlewich residents.
We have helped Clean Teams to set up in other towns and our work has been featured in newspapers, radio and television programmes. We do not seek praise but we are proud of the commendations & awards we have received.
We have achieved a great deal but there is more that can be done and so our mission remains the same, “The vision of the Middlewich Clean Team is to develop and promote a culture of pride in the town and community by working towards a litter free town and a pleasant environment for all to live in.”
Our thanks go to all that have participated and supported us, in fact to everyone that has in some way contributed to supporting our motto, “Love your town, keep it tidy”.
