BBC Radio Shropshire-Ruyton XI Towns Litter Picking Campaign
Ian Perry from BBC Radio Shropshire visited Ruyton XI Towns to talk live on air to Parish Councillors Ryan Harrison and Andrea Hall about the Parish Council’s wage on litter campaign, with the kind help and assistance of Karen Rooney, proprietor of Cafe Eleven and village resident David Shearan.
The radio station had heard that the Parish Council had recently purchased some litter picking equipment. In a follow up to a news article broadcasted the previous day, about how the Shropshire Wildlife Trust is cleaning up stretches of the River Severn, the station asked to meet up with representatives from the Parish Council and also Karen from Cafe Eleven and village residents David Shearan and Colin Case.
The interview talked about how the project came about, with a demonstration of the litter pickers from Andrea, listeners were invited to get involved if they fancied taking part in litter picks and the Parish Council is actively encouraging local residents to organise litter picks. All of the equipment is available to borrow and can be collected from Cafe Eleven.
