Love Where You Live in Hampshire!
Recycle for Hampshire have been selected to work with Keep Britain Tidy as an ‘Ambassador’ partner on the new national Love Where You Live campaign.
The campaign, which is supported by TV’s Kirstie Allsopp, aims to inspire, encourage and enable us all to make where we live, work and play the kind of place we really want it to be. It's about making a difference ourselves, whether as individuals, groups, local authorities or companies.
To support the Love Where You Live campaign, Recycle for Hampshire will be championing local community groups and litter pickers, as well as encouraging local residents to visit the Love Where You Live website where they can nominate somewhere they love, pledge to improve their local area, or register an event to receive litter picking kits. The Recycle for Hampshire team will also be working with local schools to promote litter picking in their grounds.
Councillor Leslie Keeble, Chairman of the Project Integra Strategic Board said: “We know that residents and community groups across Hampshire are already out making where they live better places through activities such as litter picking and community clean-ups. By working with Love Where You Live we hope to offer them some well-deserved recognition whilst encouraging other local people to get involved and make a positive change in their areas.”
Phil Barton, chief executive of Keep Britain Tidy, said:
“We are delighted that Recycle for Hampshire have joined us as an ambassador partner for Love Where You Live.
“Our ambitious campaign can only work with the support of everyone in the community – individuals, businesses, schools and voluntary organisations. With the help of enthusiastic partners like Recycle for Hampshire, Love Where You Live will make a real difference to the places where people live, work and play.”
Keep Britain Tidy Ambassador Kirstie Allsopp said:
“I wish Recycle for Hampshire the best of luck with their Love Where You Live work and encourage all Hampshire residents to get behind the campaign.”
