The 2015 CPRE campaign to improve the appearance of local towns and villages in Northern Lincolnshire is underway and Brigg needs to up its standards on litter management if it is to feature in the organisation’s summer awards.
There were 31 entries in the Best Kept Towns and Villages Competitions last year, with Howsham and Redbourne, picking up awards.
“Brigg entered last year as a small town but did not do well due to the amount of litter in the town centre and on the riverside,” said John Rose CPRE area chairman.
“This year we are really having a focus on litter control. “We look for tidy well-maintained areas and are not always impressed with artificial flowers. It’s about enthusiasm and dedication to the effort.”
Entries are due in by June 6.
CPRE is the Campaign to Protect Rural England and is a nationwide organisation fighting for a better future for England’s unique, essential and precious countryside. It is not connected with the Britain in Bloom awards.
