BARROW & FURNESS MP Simon Fell highlighted his promise to keep the region’s streets clean and tidy by inviting the Conservative Party Chairman up to take part in a litter pick.
The litter pick in Dalton on Saturday afternoon took place as part of the Great British September Clean.
Simon is working together with local people and the borough council to highlight the problems of litter blighting many neighbourhoods, so that a good case can be made to bring a regular street cleaner back to the area.
Conservative Party Chairman, Amanda Milling joined Simon and local Conservatives on the litter pick on Market Street, Skelgate and Goose Green, which saw them collect three large bin bags full of rubbish.
She said: “I’d like to thank Simon for inviting me up to Barrow. Cumbria is such a beautiful part of the country and I’m pleased campaigning local MPs like Simon are so committed to cracking down on litter and waste, which unfortunately is a scourge of many of our neighbourhoods.
“The Great British September Clean is a fantastic campaign and I would urge others to get involved.”
Thanking the Party Chairman for her support, Simon said: “I’d like to thank Amanda for joining us at the weekend. I decided to organise the litter pick after numerous residents contacted me about the amount of litter building up on their roads.
“I will now be working with the council, so that a good case can be made to bring a regular street cleaner back to Dalton.”
