Newport youths helping to keep their parks clean

Written on June 3, 2021

Borough and town councillor for Newport Thomas Janke said he was heartened to hear from a boy in the town who takes an active part in keeping Norbroom Park clean.

It came after the councillor undertook his own litter pick and noticed “plenty” of food and drink waste.

He said: “Norbroom skate park has been given a once over this morning – plenty of plastic bottles and sweet wrappers around despite there being several bins to choose from.

“If anyone who uses the skatepark or Norbroom Park in general wishes to help keep this area free from litter, why not consider signing up to be a Street Champion?”

It is Telford & Wrekin Council’s scheme for providing residents with the tools to clean up their areas. Learn more at telford.gov.uk/info/20474/streets_and_roads/383/street_champions.
