On Friday, I joined litter volunteers in St Margaret’s Bay, collecting litter that had been left behind by bank holiday visitors and put it in rubbish bags for safe disposal. I was joined by Council leader, Cllr Trevor Bartlett, Cllr Martin Bates, Cllr Oliver Richardson and Parish Council Chairman, Cllr Rebecca Simcox.
We were part of a group marking National Volunteer Week and backing the Great British Spring Clean campaign. Our volunteers did an excellent job as litter damages our local environment greatly and can be harmful to wildlife. Visitors to the area must take their rubbish home with them and dispose of it responsibly.
Thank you to all the litter volunteers who do so much to keep our beaches clean and keep our area clean and tidy. Keeping Britain Tidy is something all of us can help with. So if you have rubbish please take it home with you, or use the bins provided. Together we can keep Dover & Deal beautiful for all to enjoy so let’s all do our bit to Keep Britain, and Dover and Deal, Tidy.
