Lancashire residents are being asked to nominate a local ‘grot spot’ most in need of a spring clean.

Cleaning products brand Vileda wants help in drawing up a list of landmarks or buildings that need help, which can range from statues to signposts or church halls to community centres.

The dirtiest or most run-down landmark will receive a full makeover as part of Vileda’s Big UK Clean-Up.

Lindsey Taylor, of Vileda ,said: “We know how a little sparkle and shine can make people incredibly proud of their homes, so why not apply this to their local area?”

The Lancashire and Greater Manchester areas have been chosen as a pilot area for the scheme, because of Vileda’s long history of production in Rochdale.

People can nominate a local building or landmark via the Vileda Facebook page, which can be found at:

Nominations will be taken until February 18.

After this date, a shortlist of three top entries will be announced.

Facebook users will then be able to vote for the winning landmark until March 1.
