Plastic Free Long Ashton is go!

April 11th 2018

As of today, PFLA is go! We had a fantastic turnout at our launch meeting in the Pavilion, Keedwell Hill, attended by over 70 residents of Long Ashton. 

The meeting was kicked off by Michelle Cassar from City to Sea who brought the issues of plastic pollution home by talking about her experiences over the last few years and the work she is doing. We then had a useful session given by Catrin Wade of North Somerset Council about waste management and recycling. 

The session culminated with a presentation by Rosie Payne about her vision for Long Ashton and how we can achieve the Surfers Against Sewage "Plastic Free Community Status".
