South Kesteven Council urges families to do their bit to keep communities litter-free
Families are being encouraged to do their bit to help keep their communities litter-free.
South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) can supply equipment including refuse bags and hi-vis vests free of charge for community litter-picks.
Nine-year-old Oscar and four-year-old Rosalind Moseley (pictured) showed the way by deciding to carry out a litter-pick in their home village of Rippingale and filled a bag through their efforts.
Their father, SKDC’s cabinet member for commercial and operations, Councillor Dr Peter Moseley, said: “We have already seen some fantastic community efforts by families that clearly care deeply about the areas in which they live.
“SKDC’s highly-successful Big Clean project was set up to achieve a higher street standard that consistently exceeds national standards.
“There will, however, always be areas we can’t get to as often as we would like, so community involvement like this is very welcome.”
