Love where you live in time for Olympics
Goldington Green Lower School is showing the local community that they Love Where They Live this summer, by taking part in a litter pick event along with Flynn the Bin Elf, on the morning of Friday 6th July.
The litter pick has been spurred on by the new Keep Britain Tidy initiative called the Love Where You Live campaign – which encourages the great British public to take pride in their community and do a tidy up before the Olympic torch passes through their local area. Goldington Green Lower School’s pupils are all set to show their local community how much they care about the area they live in.
The Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “The torch will make its way to Bedford on Sunday 8th July and we want to ensure the town is at its cleanest and tidiest. Goldington Green Lower School pupils, and other volunteers, are leading the way, and we encourage everyone to back this campaign and help keep our communities tidy before, and after, the torch comes to town.”
You can get involved in the anti-littering campaign by ordering a tidy up kit, which includes tabards, refuse sacks and limited-edition Show the World wristbands, from www.lovewhereyoulive.org/showtheworld Orders take approximately seven days to be processed.
