Don’t be a litterbug: Whitworth in Bloom launches anti-litter poster contest with cash prizes

Date published: 02 June 2021

Cash prizes are up for grabs with the Whitworth in Bloom anti-litter poster competition.

The volunteer-led organisation is running a competition for local children to design an ‘anti-litter’ poster to display in their window at home.

First prize in both age categories (up to 10 years old and 11-16 years) is £10, with a second place prize of £5 in both age groups.

To enter, create a colourful poster with an anti-litter theme, display it in your window for all to see, email a photo of the poster plus your name, age and address to the Whitworth in Bloom committee.

You can also post a copy of the poster on the Keep Whitworth Tidy and Whitworth in Bloom Facebook pages.

Competition entries must be received by Saturday 12 June.

Whitworth in Bloom aims to improve civic pride through imaginative planting, encouraging recycling and sustainability projects, and eliminate eyesores that blight the streets such as litter, graffiti and vandalism.

The idea was to combine the groups that are already working hard to improve the town and work on one project together.

The group is currently planning the route to take the judges on for the 2021 competition.

If you want to get involved please visit the Whitworth in Bloom Facebook page or contact Melanie on 01706 852018 or by email.
