In addition, the Team has purchased a high volume laser printer which is to be used, amongst other things, to produce publicity material. Raising awareness in this way is definitely working it has resulted in new recruits to the Clean Team. Chairperson, Janet Chisholm said, “It is our aim to set up clean teams all over the country. We have been successful in Cheshire East with litter groups being formed in all the major towns and a number of towns in Cheshire West and Chester and elsewhere in the Country are now beginning to follow suit.”
Middlewich Clean Team has received a grant of £3,500 from the Big Lottery to buy new equipment, including computer and presentation equipment which will be used to help them to set up new litter picking groups throughout the Country.
Vice-Chairman and Grants Officer Stephen Dent said, “We are frequently asked to give talks to other groups who are interested in setting up a clean team and we can now put on a very professional display using the latest digital technology. We have already used the equipment to show our work to residents of Winsford and to put on a display at the Middlewich local volunteers event at the Wych Centre when a rolling presentation was given.”
