Lately Douglas has developed quite a problem with litter. Our parks, footways and roads have all become populated with empty cans, wrappers and plastic bottles. We hope you will agree it makes our village look terrible.
Research has shown that there are links between the amount of litter and the popularity of tourist destinations, and also between the amount of litter compared to crime rates in the area. Even the price of homes can take a hit due to the 'invisible' cost of litter. Instead of moaning about the family of empty cans rolling down our streets, why don't we get rid of them?
We invite you, your family, your friends, your neighbours to take part in the community clean-up on the 21st of April!
