Councillor carries out her litter pick pledge
9:50am Tuesday 24th April 2012 in News
MALVERN’S newest councillor put one of her election pledges into practice as she organised a tidy-up around one of the town’s historic water features.
Anna Stenning, who was elected to represent the Link Ward on Malvern Town Council in a by-election last month, gathered a group of volunteers on Saturday morning and tackled the area around Lord Sandy’s Spout in Spring Lane in preparation for its use in next month’s well dressing celebrations.
“The springs are the essence of what’s unique about Malvern, its beautiful natural environment, and are available for everyone to enjoy,” said Councillor Stenning. “One of my election pledges was to improve availability and access to green space in the ward, and I hope this will contribute to awareness of the many things the Link has to offer.”
She thanked Malvern Hills District Council’s street scene team for lending the equipment.
