WE ARE backing a clean and litter-free Sudbury – that is the message coming from businesses joining forces with community wardens to fight the town’s litter bugs.

After launching an appeal to get 25 litter kits made up – consisting of a litter picker, high visibility vests, gloves and black bags – several businesses have come forward to help with funding. Sudbury Town Council community warden Bradley Smith said: “We’ve had a great response from several firms that have helped us, pledging to sponsor the litter kits.

“Some have given us items to go into the kit, like our litter pickers and gloves, and others will support the funding by having their logos put on the kit bag.

“These kits will now go to Scouts and community groups in the district who are helping us keep on top of the litter problem in certain parts of the town. It’s a real community effort.”

Mr Smith said he was looking for more businesses to join in the scheme, with the aim of getting a further 25 kits made up in future.
