Right royal clean-up after a call for help

 March 2016                                                                                              A NANTWICH LITTER GROUP PAGE   

UNDER the watchful eye of our Chairman, Cllr John Lewis (in a trilby), eager new recruit Edward Timpson MP (centre) listens to instructions from Team Leader Joyce Webb before the Nantwich Litter Group takes to the streets of Nantwich to hunt down and capture litter.

   The occasion was the national Clean for the Queen weekend (March 4 to 6) and there was a large turnout on the Saturday morning to show solidarity with local residents and visitors in the campaign to eradicate the litter problem.

   Volunteers dispersed across town for an hour of picking, followed by refreshments at Nantwich Methodist Church.

   Nantwich Litter Group were pleased to be supported by the MP who has been actively promoting litter awareness at Westminster.

   It is hoped that the high profile given to this campaign throughout the country will raise the awareness level of the anti-social nature of littering and the high cost borne by us all in clearing up after the litter louts.

 

THE Clean for the Queen campaign aimed for the biggest community-led clean-up the country has ever seen ahead of the Queen’s 90th birthday.

   It was backed by organisations which include the Women’s Institute, the National Trust and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, as well as businesses including McDonald’s, Costa, Greggs, KFC and Wrigley.

   Also involved were anti-litter charities such as Keep Britain Tidy (that's their logo, above left)

and the Campaign to Protect Rural England.

   The campaign is supported by the Government, and Cheshire East Council is  encouraging and supporting groups and individuals who want to "do their bit" to help clear up the litter that blights our streets, parks,

 

 hedgerows and grass verges.

    If everyone could look around and pick up even one piece of litter, what a difference it would make. By joining in and taking responsibility for our environment we can all take a pride in the benefit to our town.
