Plastic free Longridge

The delighted compere for the event was former Longridge mayor Town Councillor Steve Ashcroft. He was in office when a local schoolgirl Jeannie Wilkinson, eight, from St Joseph's school at Hurst Green, wrote to the council with a plea for the council to make Longridge a leader in the fight against excess use of single use plastic and become a plastic free town. She had declared: "We really must do something."

Jeannie was unable to attend Saturday's celebration but the award was presented to current Longridge mayor Coun Bryan Dalgleish-Warburton on her behalf by another pupil from St Joseph's Matilda Blunden.
