Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, has pledged his support for this year’s Great British September Clean, run by environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy, together with East Riding of Yorkshire Council Ward Councillors for Beverley Rural, Minster and Woodmansey, South East Holderness, South West Holderness and Mid Holderness.
The campaign runs from 11th-27 September and encourages the great British public to take part in small, socially distanced clean-ups to remove litter from streets, parks and beaches across the country.
Graham said “It’s so depressing to look down on pavements, grass verges or beaches and see discarded takeaway cartons, tins, cigarette ends, sweet wrappers. What on earth can litterers be thinking? Surely everyone is brought up to put their rubbish in a bin or take it home.
“So it’s great to be out during The Great British September Clean with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Ward Councillors to collect some of the litter and improve our environment.”
Cllr Pauline Greenwood, Ward Councillor for Beverley Rural said;
“I represent such a beautiful Ward and it’s a dreadful shame when it’s blighted by thoughtless individuals dropping their rubbish. It’s great to be out and about with our MP doing something about it.”
Cllr Paul Nickerson, Ward Councillor for Minster and Woodmansey said;
“My Ward Councillor colleagues and I jumped at the chance to get involved with the Great British September Clean to help highlight the environmental damage littering causes. I want to see Minster and Woodmansey free of litter, and to stay that way as the few who spoil it for the rest of us become enlightened and dispose of their rubbish responsibly.”
