Through innovative campaigns, dedicated volunteering and new partnerships, ten winners were announced who have all worked very hard to improve their local areas and inspire others.
From a ten-year-old Litter Hero to celebrations of parks or sprucing up a whole county, the winners demonstrated that together everyone’s actions can make massive difference.
The BCC was proud to support the event and were official sponsor of the Outstanding Service Delivery award. This was deservedly won by Doncaster Council for transforming their street scene services.
Paul Thrupp, the BCC’s Deputy Chair, presented the award. He said: “The BCC was proud to support Keep Britain Tidy’s Network Awards. It was also fantastic to see so many different organisations and partners get together to highlight the need to create, maintain and cherish a clean and safe environment, both natural and built, for the good of everyone.”
