Patrick Robinson of Nantwich Litter Action (1)

The leader of Nantwich Litter Action Patrick Robinson has been named as the latest “Local Legend” by The Cat FM.

Patrick received his monthly “Baked by Gill Cat Cake” and a Local Legend certificate from The Cat’s MD Chris Cadman.

He then swiftly donated the cake to the Macmillan Nurses at Leighton Hospital and dedicated the award to the active pickers and supporters of Nantwich Litter Action.

Patrick was nominated by John Statham, Nantwich North & West Town Councillor.

Cllr Statham said: “The NLA Facebook group was set up just 12 months ago to harness the power of social media in tackling the litter problems in and around Nantwich.

“Since then, the group has grown to over 100 members, many of them are out several times a week collecting litter in their area.

“As the group approaches its first birthday, the NLG team are fast approaching the huge milestone of 1000 large bags of litter collected!

“Patrick has led the group to this success in a very short space of time.

“He is a passionate leader and keeps everyone organised in their approach, highlighting ‘grot-spots’ to focus on and keeping track of the amount of litter collected.”

Chris Cadman, Managing Director of The Cat, said: “Recognising the work done by people like Patrick and his team is the reason we launched this award.

“People who do great things within the community, making where we live a better place.”

The Local Legend Award looks to recognise individuals and organisations who have gone that extra mile in support of their communities.

It is sponsored by ‘Baked by Gill’ with winners being drawn out of a hat to receive a wonderful cake, Cat 107.9FM goodies and a certificate.

    What a star, staggeringly brilliant team we have with all the volunteers out in all weathers, In just one year we wanted to have control when so much control has been taken from our lives we now have over 260 members and have collected over 1500 bags of litter, if we can all stop trashing our town by using the bins and not lobbing drinks cans out of car windows we would look amazing for all the visitors we need to kick start business in our area. Well done Patrick you rock!
