Youngsters in Clitheroe were asked to design posters by local resident Miss Jeanette Pateman to help keep the town clean and tidy.

Maggie Ashcroft s design was based on the dangers of animals picking up the litter, so people would think twice about dropping rubbish. Also, to encourage people to use bins to keep Clitheroe a litter free town for everyone to enjoy.

Miss Pateman said: "Maggie’s design will now be used as the achievement certificate presented to young people, residents and schools, who take pride in their local area and go the extra mile in cleaning or clearing areas for all to enjoy.
