@IanAxton We hope to use social media to engage people in local politics by hosting a livestream hustings for the County council elections
There will a Community Litter Pick on Wednesday 8th April in Shaftesbury. It will take place around Wincombe Lane Play Park and the surrounding streets.
The event is being organised by local resident Simon Pritchard - 'The idea is to get as many families to join in as possible. If children learn from a young age to take pride in the area where they live, hopefully they will continue to take pride in our town as they get older'.
The Hill Top Litter Pickers, a group of local volunteers that was formed around 4 years ago in Shaftesbury, are assisting with the event.
'We already have a wonderful group of volunteers that go around our town each week and tidy it up', says Simon, 'my event is asking families – the young and old, to join in for an hour or so and lend a hand'
Please come along to Lindlar Hall at 2pm where you will be provided with refuse bags, gloves, high vis jacket and grabbers. Children must be accompanied by an adult, and as it's Easter there may be a chocolate egg for the younger volunteers!
