Celebration – 10 Years of Street Pride

SP 151008-05BThursday evening, a group of us attended the 10 Year celebration of Fenland Councils ‘Street Pride’ – A fantastic achievement by all 12 groups now involved, plus now the ‘In Bloom Groups’ and ‘Friends Groups’. I was invited to give a ‘Key Note Speech’, my theme was the success of Whittlesea Street Pride – Its history, objectives and statistics. We have collected in excess of 43,000 Kgs of Rubbish and Litter over the 8 years our group has been going, we were the 2nd group to be formed.

The amount the ‘Contractors to Cambs CC are wasting, Now multiply this all over the County… again a Big Amount….Now all illustrious councillors are looking at ways of saving money? we I suggest starting HERE…
