Litter Free News – December 2017
Posted : December 15, 2017
The Last Straw campaign is asking people to give up plastic straws. The Christmas and New Year campaign aims to reduce the amount of disposable plastic straws used and thrown away. Find out more about the project on our website and see how you can get involved: www.litterfreecoastandsea.co.uk/the-last-straw/ or follow on twitter and Facebook #TheLastStraw.
Litter Free Coast and Sea visited the sewage treatment works run by Wessex Water over in Swanage. This allowed LFCS to see the effects of putting fats, oils and greases down the drain. LFCS will be working with Wessex Water on a new project located in Swanage in the new on this issue.
Litter Free Dorset attended the local Swanage pub watch meeting to discuss the Bin Your Butts campaign, and how pubs in Swanage can help promote the message. Additional portable ashtrays were distributed to the pub landlords, and the HUBBUB Ballot Bin was given to the landlord of the Anchor Inn to trial out to help reduce the number of cigarette butts discarded in Swanage.
A roadside litter campaign is currently being put together, look out for more information in the New Year.
Thank you to all of the volunteers, businesses, partners and organisations who have got involved with Litter Free Coast and Sea over the last year.
Artist wanted for Poole regeneration project
Posted : December 14, 2017
Could you improve Poole in Dorset? We have an opportunity for an artist/urban designer/landscape architect. You’ll work as part of an engineering team on regeneration developments. We want to increase the quality of the resident and visitor experience. Our aim is to encourage repeat visits, which will help the local economy.
Dorset Coast Forum are looking for concept development and detailed design on two projects. These are at Shore Road Beach and Branksome Chine. Both projects recognise the importance of the artist, who will have a creative and innovative input. For this reason, we want to bring in an artist at the start. This will enable them to work as part of the cross-disciplinary team. Designs will need to be of exceptional quality and sensitive to the surrounding environment.
These projects are part of the wider Dorset Coastal Connections portfolio. This group of 18 projects is funded by the Coastal Community Fund and coordinated by the Dorset Coast Forum. The Arts Development Company is working collaboratively with Dorset Coast Forum and the individual project teams.
To apply visit the Arts Development Company’s website: www.theartsdevelopmentcompany.org.uk/stories/jobs-and-opportunities/poole-regeneration/
