A MASSIVE spring clean of the whole of Oxford is looking for volunteers now.

More than 1,000 helpers are expected to lend a hand at this year's OxClean Spring Clean on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, February 28, 29 and March 1.

Dozens of groups are wanted to work in different areas of the city, picking up unsightly and environmentally-damaging litter.

Last year's event, organised by Oxford Civic Society, saw more than 1,000 volunteers in 93 groups tackle grot-spots around the city and suburbs.

They cleared more than six tonnes of litter 'plus lots of other unsightly rubbish'.
