    Love Where you live Day of Action on 17 October

    On Monday 17 October at noon, love where you live are asking everyone to give five minutes of their time as part of a special Love Where You Live Day of Action across the country.

    They are giving everyone the chance to show their support for Love Where You Live as part of the day and you can be part of it too by giving just five minutes of your tim...e at noon on 17 October to show your support.

    They are asking councils, schools, businesses and any other individuals and organisations to stop what they are doing for a few minutes and show a little love to their local area.

    It could be a litter pick outside your offices, a spot of weeding in a public place or just telling someone you know about the campaign and how to get involved. Whatever you decide to do, as Big Ben strikes 12 noon please show that you care and be part of a national movement.

    Events will be taking place across England on 17 October, with major set-piece activities planned in Wigan, Birmingham and London. You can tell us what you have planned on Facebook and Twitter, but don't forget to post news of your event on their website too

    The more that get involved, the more things can be changed for the better!
