“We are very aware the Village, and local area, is coming to life after the lockdown and want to encourage visitors and locals to look after the natural environment”.

Community Councillor Joost Spit, who designed signage to be displayed, adds:

“Like other locations on and off the Island, there has been incidents of anti-social fly-tipping, and we want to remind all that come to St Helens to look after the landscape and not leave litter’.

Cllr Duckett concludes:

“We are grateful for the support of partner agencies, and if everyone does their bit, St Helens will continue to be an inclusive and environmentally friendly venue for all to visit and enjoy”.
