30/11/15 - Big Dee Day clean-up award for Chester Branch

Congratulations to our Chester branch who received this year’s Business award in recognition for continued support of the Big Dee Day clean up event.
The annual clean-up along the river Dee, organised by Cheshire West and Chester Council, Flintshire Council and Natural Resources Wales, returned bigger and better than ever, for its ninth year.

More than 157 bags of litter were collected and more than 2,000 bulbs were planted during the volunteer event which brought together residents and representatives from organisations and businesses.

Councillor Dixon said: "What a wonderful achievement for everyone involved with the Big Dee event in Cheshire West.  Everyone has achieved fantastic results and this year’s event has been the best yet.

"I’ve been involved with Big Dee Day for some years now and, as the number of volunteers and partners grows, it’s developed from just litter picking along the banks of the Dee to include bulb planting, bench painting and the maintenance of hedges, paths and trees.

"I would like to thank everyone who got involved and congratulate them all on a job well done.  I’d also like to thank this year’s hosts Flintshire County Council for their hospitality.”
