Test Valley litter buster visits new Council Leader

Tuesday, 28 May 2013

Test Valley's energetic anti-litter campaigner Manuela Wahnon was one of the first official visitors to Hampshire County Council's new Leader, Roy Perry.

Manuela, who campaigns the length and breadth of Test Valley, particularly visiting schools and organising litter picks, wants to take her anti-litter message across other parts of Hampshire, hence her visit to the Council's headquarters in Winchester.

Manuela is already scheduled to organise a campaign at Lee-on-the-Solent where she wants to see more litter bins installed especially in the car park.

Councillor Perry said: "I wish we had more people with the sheer enthusiasm and determination to fight litter as Manuela and I wish her well in her campaigning. I am grateful for the annual visit she makes to Wellow each year, where I live, to help pick up litter particularly on the A36. I told her that I was writing to McDonald's in the light of the refusal of planning permission by the New Forest National Park, for a new McDonald's at Picket Post in the New Forest to ask them to deal with the litter their restaurant at Ower causes over many miles. I hope they may take my complaint seriously."
