Our superhero has been found!
4 October 2017
In the last week of July we put out a call for a superhero to help us design an A4 poster with an 'It's not ok to litter message' to help us clean up our district.
We had an overwhelming response with more than 200 entries and the quality was so outstanding it took us a little longer to judge than first thought.
It was not an easy task for our judging panel of Mayor David Trewavas, anti-litter campaigner Carol Lamb, and main sponsor Mark Gibson of Top Gear Cycles, to choose a winner but in the end there was one entry that stood out from the rest.

We need a superhero!
14 September 2017
A big thank you to everyone who has submitted an entry to our Superhero competition. We have had an overwhelming response! This has delayed the judging process so we will now be announcing the winner the week ending September 29. We apologise for any inconvenience.
We want help with our war on litter! We want help from some young superhero to design an A4 poster with an 'IT'S NOT OK TO LITTER' message. Those ideas will be used to help us clean up our district. Please see the terms and conditions further below.
