This morning I went to Hannah More Primary School. I was excited to meet three fantastic groups of children from Knowle, St Philips and Lockleaze that have been collecting litter in their communities.
Today these children were given litter-pickers, capes and superhero outfits and a chance to show how they do their bit.
This is an example of the work the Clean Streets Campaign have been doing along with Bristol Waste to drive and embed a culture change in our attitudes to litter in the City – children are great advocates and their enthusiasm today was inspiring.
As a result we have been discussing superheroes in my office – we were undecided about whether Batman counts as a ‘super’ hero, but anyone in Bristol that takes responsibility for the way their city looks is a hero in my book.
To find out more about the campaign and to get involved visit here.
This weekend I am off to enjoy the Southmead Festival, hopefully see some of you there!
