Cherish Your Country

As we ease out of lockdown the media will be filled once again with images of litter strewn public spaces. It is something that really gets to me. As the daughter of someone who was in charge of public cleansing (as it was called then) I’ve always been a bit obsessed with rubbish, litter and recycling. I used to chase after people and tell them they had dropped something, I’m less likely to do that now.I have clear memories of litter campaigns and thought some of them were worth re-sharing. I wonder who we could get to front something similar today? Of course now it would have to be Keep England/Scotland/Wales tidy and that would result in different timescales, approaches etc for political point scoring reasons and would therefore lack impact and cohesion……sigh.
