A group of 15-16 year 7's are currently working with Wiltshire Wildlife trust on a litter campaign. Students will be designing posters that will be judged by Wiltshire County Council and Tidworth Parish Council. The winning design will become the official poster. We are immensely proud of the good work these students are doing in the community.
The Wiltshire Wildlife Trust Waste and Recycling team have been working in Tidworth since April 2016; delivering waste and recycling workshops and events to preschools, schools, youth groups and the wider community. By talking to community members and taking part in community litter picks, it was clear there is a litter problem in Tidworth and Ludgershall; this is due to people not taking their litter home and not using street bins!
Litter IS an issue in Tidworth, but it doesn’t need to be. We want to encourage people to use bins or even better take their rubbish home and recycle it! Let’s tell Tidworth - not binning your rubbish is not ok! We’d like you to design an innovative, creative and fun litter campaign which grabs the attention of the public but with a serious underlying intention that inspires behaviour change; this could be in the form of posters, stickers for street bins, an education pack, a short video, a social media campaign or something completely different – Use your imagination!
