Community coming together to tackle litter

Croxteth Councillors joined forces with local school pupils to become ‘litter heroes’ and clean up the local area as part of a Keep Britain Tidy scheme.

Children from Emmaus Primary School provided councillors, representatives from the Community Payback Team, council staff and residents with a work schedule of which showed where they wanted cleaned up.

Keep Britain Tidy Chief Executive Allison Ogden-Newton said: “Littering is a serious issue that blights the beautiful beaches, countryside and cities of the UK. It also has a devastating effect on our wildlife.”

Croxteth Councillor, Anthony Lavelle, said: “The Great British Spring Clean is an opportunity for everyone who cares about the rubbish scarring the country and our community to get involved and make a difference.”
