SUDBURY has it in the bag when it comes to keeping a lid on litter.

Town council warden Bradley Smith has managed to secure sponsorship from several Sudbury businesses to get 20 litter-picking kits made up. And now they are available to community-minded Sudbury residents or community groups to borrow from the town hall.

“We launched an appeal earlier this year for businesses and organisations to support our litter bags and we are delighted to have got the backing from various companies, big and small, which have got their names emblazoned on the outside of each bag,” said Mr Smith.

“It’s something we’ve always wanted to do as we often get requests from people asking if we can loan out litter picking kits, which we’ve done, but we’ve not always had everything returned.

“This way, we’ve now got 20 complete kits to loan out, and we’d be glad to hear from anyone who wants to borrow one.”

Business and organisations that have supported the litter kit campaign include Babergh District Council’s Community Safety Partnership, Ernest Doe, Mwah gym, MTM plant and tool hire, B&Q and Jackie’s Cafe in North Street.
