Community Gets Involved In We Love Stockport Campaign

Keen residents in Stockport have been getting together to get involved with our environmental campaign ‘We Love Stockport – Be Proud of Where You Live’.

After seeing the involvement from other local resident’s one young resident, Phoebe, aged 6 from Reddish was so inspired to take pride in her local area that she has been organising regular litter picks on her street and in parks.

Phoebe, said: “It’s lots of fun to help clear up rubbish and makes you feel really good when you see how clean the streets are afterwards. I do wish people would take their rubbish with them and recycle it. Hopefully seeing us litter picking on the street with help them remember.”

Cllr Sheila Bailey Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “I would like to thank Phoebe and her mum for doing their bit to help keep Stockport’s streets clean. Communities are at the heart of Stockport and it has been wonderful to see how many people have come together following the launch of our We Love Stockport campaign to make Stockport an even cleaner and greener place to live.”
