Council aiming to lead by example on reducing single use plastic

Rushcliffe Borough Council will aim to lead by example to local businesses and residents by reviewing single use plastic usage across its services.

As such products become ever more into the spotlight through documentaries such as BBC One’s Blue Planet II, a Full Council Meeting on in December 7 saw councillors unanimously support a motion to review where their impact could be lessened during its activities.

This could include a review of what single use plastics and packaging are used by its service areas and contractors or consider publicising advice and information to residents, businesses and parish and town councils on avoidance of use of the items.

The Leader of the Council,  Coun.  Simon Robinson said: “All the councillors were in agreement with this motion in response to growing global concerns.
“We want to be an environmentally friendly authority and talk must lead to action. Together we are committed to making a positive difference to the environment in Rushcliffe and we also need our partners to come on board with this.”
Thanking Councillor Sue Mallender for proposing the original motion, Coun. Robinson also confirmed the motion would see the Council consider the mechanisms to ban the use of Chinese lanterns and helium balloons on council land and open spaces.
Increasing harm to farmers’ livestock, wildlife and the local environment was cited for the review to curb the items in their public areas.
The Council’s Community Development Group scrutiny work programme will now consider developing an action plan as part of their focus in 2018 with any key recommendations presented for consideration by Cabinet.

Seth Harris of Wysall South Africa school hockey tour  with the support of the Wysall and Thorpe Bowls Club Educational Trust

Seth harris Seth harris

Sixteen year old Seth Harris of Wysall has recently home returned from South Africa having spent two weeks touring with his school hockey tour and has described it as something he will never forget.

Says Seth: “We spent a week in sunny Durban where we played 3 tough matches against very strong opposition. Aside to the hockey, we visited an orphanage where we presented them with a computer and full football kit so they could set up their own team. This visit was rewarding on many levels, particularly spending time with the children individually made me realise how fortunate I am.”

The Wysall teenager said they had also visited the local marine conservation agency where we learnt about their work in protecting the marine world as well as attending a shark dissection, learning about the anatomy of the shark.

“Later we enjoyed some downtime zip wiring across the Sampoya River before heading to the Dumazulu Cultural Village where we witnessed the traditions of the Zulu Kingdom -- African bush elephant, Black rhinoceros, African Cape buffalo and a Lion -- which was a breath taking experience. To conclude the visit, we visited a Cheetah Outreach project where we saw the great work the project provided.

Seth said that missing out on seeping a leopard wasn’t perhaps surprising. “Our guide hadn’t seen one since New Year’s Eve last year!”

“The second week of our tour saw us move down to Cape Town where we played our last four matches, again, against very well drilled schools. The facilities available at each school, especially in Cape Town, were second to none.

“ However, one match was played with the local children of Langa Township where it made us really appreciate the life we had back in UK. This game was also rewarding for many of the older boys as we were able to see the results of our charity work completed back at school; the new clubhouse and pitch looked brilliant in the shadow of Table Mountain. Towards the latter stages of our tour, the weather became very British and so benefitted the team. We won most of our matches playing in the rain! Fortunately, the weather cleared enough for us to visit Robben Island and the cell of Nelson Mandela before tackling the 2hr 30 walk up Table Mountain the next day. The views at the top were amazing and will certainly stay with me for many years to come, as well as many of the activities I undertook on the tour.“

The Wysall teenager added:  “The whole tour was certainly a once in a lifetime experience not to be forgotten. Coupled with the support of the Wysall and Thorpe Bowls Club Educational Trust, the tour was one of the most memorable things I’ve done.  I’d like to thank the committee members for helping me to get to South Africa, definitely a trip of a lifetime.”
