Community volunteers help MCO tackle litter

Bradley Stoke Clean Up

Volunteers from the Bradley Stoke community joined the Town Council’s litter picker Dave Dace in an end of summer ‘clean up’ last Saturday.

Mr Dace, whose cumbersome official title is ‘Mobile Cleansing Operative’ (MCO), was joined by a number of  high profile volunteers including Mayor Mark Forsyth, Town Clerk David Chandler and the Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Filton and Bradley Stoke Jack Lopresti.

A total of 15 people took part in the action and between them they filled 22 sacks of rubbish, collected from numerous areas throughout the town – including the Three Brooks Local Nature Reserve.

Cllr Forsyth commented:

It was a pleasure to take part in the first ‘clean up’ organised by Dave Dace, our recently appointed MCO. Whilst numbers attending were small, I am sure that in time this event will get bigger, whilst the problem of litter will get smaller. Dave has made a huge impact since joining BSTC, and has already helped facilitate a number of groups who have now started cleaning up their own areas. The Council is all about serving the community, and this clean up, along with the recent introduction of extra policing, are all part of making Bradley Stoke the place to live.
