Town or City: Melton Mowbray
Areas covered: Asfordby and surrounding countryside
Our groups main aim is to keep Asfordby and the beautiful surrounding countryside free from the blight of litter of all kinds, shapes and sizes!. This is achieved by regular organised litter picking sessions (contact me for full details), spot checks and patrolling of identified "trouble spots", liaison with local parish councils to discuss litter strategies amongst many other strands of work! We also work with local youth groups, playschemes, schools etc to promote recycling and deliver an anti-litter education programme. Future plans include more regular contact with villagers to promote pride in the village and surrounding area, along with ensuring a presence at local events throughout the year to push forward our positive message. Plans for 2015 include a "Make Asfordby Litter Free" week of events in the spring, for adults and children that will be pro-recycling, anti-litter and with a strong environmental message. The week will include Guided litter picking walks, theatre performances, music, launch of the "Nature fights back" anti- litter campaign, lectures and lots,lots more (details ASAP!) If any of this sounds like your "bag" (pun very much intended!) then please get in touch-look forward to hearing from you- Lets put litter where it belongs!!
