Children from ten Shepway schools are learning this week how they can help the countywide Clean Kent campaign to tackle litterbugs and fly-tipping. 

Theatre group Circus Takeaway are performing their show 'What a lot of litter!'  at Cheriton Primary school tomorrow (12 January) to get across serious messages in a fun way with plenty of audience participation, magic tricks, juggling and comedy.

Clean Kent - supported by Kent County Council, Shepway District Council, Kent Police and other agencies - is taking the live theatre show to 120 schools around the county as part of its campaign.

If you see someone fly-tipping or dropping litter, contact your district council or the 24-hour KCC contact centre on 0845 345 0210.

KCC Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport Richard King said: "It is important that we get the message across to children about fly-tipping and litter in an appealing way. This drama production is an excellent vehicle for Clean Kent to spread the news about looking after your local environment."
