Local Lib Dem councillors are encouraging residents to get involved in keeping our area clean and tidy.
There are now 520 volunteer litter pickers across the city and locally we are lucky to have a number of dedicated volunteers.
As part of a ‘Love where we live’ initiative, councillors want to work with local schools and community groups to tackle littering, dog fouling and graffiti. We are also discussing with council officers the use of CCTV at flytipping hotspots. If you would like to volunteer as a litter picker for your street, please call Andrew on 337757 or e-mail [email protected] and he will arrange for you to be provided with all of the necessary equipment, and you will also be covered by the council’s insurance.
As part of the ‘Great British Spring Clean’ (28 May to 13 June) we hope to organise some community litter picks. Contact Andrew for details or keep an eye on the Westfield Ward Lib Dems Facebook page.
