The Newry Reporter Picks Up the Litter Heroes Award at the LHLH Awards

Congratulation to our member, The Newry Democrat who have picked up the Litter Heroes Award sponsored by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council at the Live Here Love Here Awards.

The Newry Reporter and in particular its Editor, Paul Welsh have led the focus on improving Newry City Centre. Staff volunteered to get involved, rolling up their sleeves, and proactively leading by example by taking steps to improve the environment in Newry.

This included voluntary litter picks, voluntary weeding of streets and underpasses, repairing river walls and identifying ownership of abandoned land and co-ordinating both voluntary and public sector initiatives to improve these areas.

They are constantly looking at where needs attention, tidying litter and weeding and engaging local groups such as Newry BID, Newry2020, Clanrye Group, Local Traders and members of the public to get involved.
