Litter signs competition

Tuesday 10 October

Youth groups compete for new sign

Local young people are taking part in a competition to design new anti-littering signs for playgrounds and parks.

The competition is being organised by Swale Youth, in partnership with Swale Borough Council, and involves youth groups designing signs to encourage people to keep parks litter free.

Youth groups have been working on their entries in two categories: aged 12 and under, and 13 – 18 year olds.

Cllr David Simmons, cabinet member for environment and rural affairs at the council, said:

"We all want our parks to be clean, safe spaces for local people to enjoy, and this is a great way to help young people think about how we can tackle litter.

"I’m looking forward to seeing all the entries, and I have a feeling it’s going to be hard to pick a winner!"

The winning design for the 12 and under category will be used in a local playground, and the winner of the 13-18 category will see their design made into a sign for a local open space.

The competition is running until 30 October, with the winners being announced in the week beginning 6 November.
