Trash talking: Newmains launch Dropping Litter Is Rubbish campaign

WASTE NOT: Chairman Stuart MacKenzie

NEWMAINS UNITED want to bin the idea of leaving waste at Victoria Park.

The club have this week launched their Dropping Litter Is Rubbish campaign.

Home games will now see bin bags fixed up around the ground.

Signs will also ask fans to consider their environment when it comes to garbage.

Chairman Stuart MacKenzie is leading the quest to keep Victoria Park clean.

He said: “When the new committee took charge at the club we had several situations which had to be addressed there and then in order for the club to survive.

“However we were clear in our minds on what we wanted to achieve both on and off the park beyond that.

“Keeping Victoria Park as clean as possible and increasing the awareness of that was something we have always wanted to address.

“We are pleased to be able to do this via our Dropping Litter Is Rubbish campaign.

“We hope fans will join us in taking a pride not only in the club but also everything associated with it.

“That obviously includes the ground at which we play. Members of the public use this when we aren’t there and we want to respect their use of it too.”

MacKenzie – who has even bought his own litter picker to start tackling the issue – would also love for anyone interested in the environment to get involved with the club.

He added: “In our short spell in charge we have proved our initial statement that we want inclusion and to work in and with the community.

“We would welcome anyone who is interested in environmental issues or similar to get in touch.”
