'Faces of Cornwall' Ask Us To Stop Litter

2nd March 2016

This week sees the launch of Clean Cornwall week and to mark it a new community award has been created, celebrating those people across Cornwall who help keep the Duchy clean and beautiful.

The fifteen 'Faces of Cornwall' launching the campaign include the likes of The Kernow King, Francis the Newlyn Fisherman who brings in the litter he catches for safe depositing in the harbour bins and eight year old Ruby, who is a member of Cornwall Wildlife Trust's Fox Club. Concerned after seeing the devastating impact of marine litter on wildlife during one of the club's organised beach cleans, she wrote a speech to raise awareness amongst her peers and presented it in front of her school assembly. Since then Ruby and her sister Eloise have taken an active role in regular beach cleans across Cornwall, influencing their friends and teachers.

The fifteen faces all have one thing in common - they are taking action for the good of Cornwall. You can read more stories here

Clean Cornwall Project Manager, Jill Stott says, "At Clean Cornwall we have absolutely no doubt that there are many, MANY more faces across Cornwall who are doing lots of different things to help stop litter. That is why we wanted to create this award - to celebrate those unsung people from our community who are all taking action and playing their part in helping to keep Cornwall clean."

So, do you know anyone who deserves recognition for the role they play in helping to keep Cornwall litter free? Why not nominate them?

Nominations close at 5pm on 16 March and the winner will be announced in the West Briton on 23 March 2016. For more information on the 'For the Good of Cornwall' community award or to make a nomination please visit www.cleancornwall.org/nominate

Pirate FM is proud to be on the partnership board of Clean Cornwall, a partnership of local businesses, community groups, voluntary and public sector organisations which aims to tackle litter, protect our environment and encourage others to keep Cornwall clean and tidy.
