Tidy young ambassador highlights importance of community group

A TIDY young ambassador has been highlighting the importance Stratford’s Rubbish Friends group.

Shakespeare Lions member Harry Nash gave a presentation to fellow Lions about the group’s work in cleaning up the community.

Harry himself lends a hand during litter picks staged by the community clean-up group, and in maintaining the equipment.

And thanks to a donation from the lions, Rubbish Friends will be able to highlight their work even more with a pop-up banner.

Anyone wanting to join or find out more can search Rubbish Friends (Stratford upon Avon) on Facebook or call Becky Reynolds on 07853 995580.
