Celebration time as Malvern Hills District Council is shortlisted for a Keep Britain Tidy Award

MALVERN Hills District Council has been shortlisted for one of Keep Britain Tidy’s national award.

The council’s Community and Environmental Protection Team has beaten off stiff competition from across the country to become a finalist in the Community Engagement category for their efforts on improving the environment for local residents.

Enhancements include the Adopt-a-Street scheme, community litterpicks, Green Dog Walkers’ project, schools’ Eco-Sessions and more.

The Keep Britain Tidy Awards will be presented at the charity’s annual Network Conference at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole hotel on February 10, 2022.

The accolades recognise and celebrate local authorities committed to making significant improvements to the environment on people’s doorsteps, from community engagement work to waste enforcement work.

There are ten award categories altogether, each with three shortlisted contenders.

MHDC will be in the running alongside The City of Westminster and Manchester City Council.

Keep Britain Tidy’s Chief Executive, Allison Ogden-Newton, said: “I would like to congratulate Malvern Hills District Council on being shortlisted for one of our annual awards.

“We know that people want to live in places that are clean and tidy and local authorities have a massive role to play in this and should rightly be recognised for their efforts.”

Coun Tom Wells, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Malvern Hills District Council, said: “We are really proud to be shortlisted for this award, our team work really hard on improving the environment around the district and it is great to see all their efforts have been recognised.”
