17th January 2014 – Community volunteers needed to help move Radcliffe Up and Forward

Recycle for Greater Manchester’s ‘Up and Forward’ project funded by the European Funding stream Life + is looking for volunteers to help plan and run a fun, family event in Radcliffe. The event which is scheduled to take place in March 2014 will be focused on helping local people to recycle more and waste less.

To ensure the community’s voice is heard, the Up and Forward project team from Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority (GMWDA) and Recycling Officers at Bury Council are asking for local residents to become Recycling Ambassadors.

Campaign Officer, Michelle Lynch, said: “This is a great opportunity for the residents of Radcliffe to get involved in a fun event to promote recycling, focused on the needs of the community. You don’t need to be an expert all we ask is that you are enthusiastic about making a difference to your community.”

Recruitment of ‘Recycling Ambassadors’ has already started and anyone who is interested in helping out is invited to attend a community meeting on Tuesday 28th January, 7.00pm to 8.00pm at Dumers Lane Community Centre and Library, Dumers Lane, Radcliffe, M26 2GN.
Alternatively please call Michelle on 0161 770 1764 or email ra@gmwda.gov.uk

Volunteers will receive full training and an information pack, to assist them in the ambassador role.
