Seen a grot-spot in Cheshire? Let us know about it!
CPRE's President, Bill Bryson, has been vocal about the importance of cleaning up England's rural and urban areas. When the 'Stop the Drop' campaign was launched he commented:
Let me remind you of an extremely urgent fact: nowhere in the world is there a landscape more lovely to behold, more comfortable to be in, more artfully worked, more visited and walked across and gazed upon than the countryside of England. It is a glorious achievement and much too lovely to trash.
CPRE Cheshire are keen to get involved, both to supplement the work of some of the well established litter picking teams such as the Middlewich Clean Team and to start up activity in places where there has been no community anti-litter action. We are planning to run a 'spring-clean Cheshire' campaign in 2010 and are looking for a project manager and other volunteers - please get in touch with us if you would like to get involved, or if you would like to let us know about a 'grot spot' that needs a spring clean! We will get in touch with the relevant authority to request that they tackle the issue, as well as adding it to our list of potential sping-clean litter picks.
If you would like to take action on litter, here are some practical steps:
1. Report a litter or fly-tipping problem to your local council
2. Help us persuade the Government to take action on litter
3. Join LitterAction
4. Make your school litter free
5. Sign up to Bill Bryson’s Stop the Drop newsletter
