Campaign: Hansel and Gretel in litter campaign

Visitors to a Lancashire park are being asked to help keep the area clean.

As this year’s final outdoor walkabout theatre show in Lancaster’s Williamson Park comes to a close, people are being encouraged to keep it tidy and putting their litter in the bin.

The cast of Hansel and Gretel have been involved in a clean-up campaign, and are asking others to take pride in the area and do the same.

Half a million people have attended the Dukes’ open-air theatre shows over the last 27 years, and this summer has contributed to the milestone as shows ran from August 6 to August 16.

Coun David Smith, cabinet member with responsibility for parks and open spaces, asked people to take pride in the park by visiting, putting their litter in the bin, or joining a friends group.

He said: “With such a large audience, it takes an extra special effort to ensure that the park is clean and ready for all the other visitors that come and enjoy the park throughout the summer.

“Everyone can play a part and take pride in their park just by visiting, putting their litter in the bin or by joining a Friends group.”

Anyone who has visited Williamson Park recently can give feedback via the short online survey available at www.lancaster.gov.uk/takepride.
