ONE Week on, and Dunmow's litter day is being hailed as a big success. Councillors and Dunmow Society members now hope the town can take litter collection and prevention to a whole new stage.
The Mayors presence at the litter day has done wonders to promote keeping Dunmow tidy and organisers hope that the bandwagon will keep on rolling.
Dunmow Society chairman Mike Foster and treasurer Chris Kerridge are two of the men behind the big clean up and they want to raise the issue on the town's agenda by launching a campaign with the slogan "Have you picked up your five-a-day?". Look out for posters around town as the campaign gets into full swing.
Mr Kerridge said: "It would be great to change the culture of the town, so when we clean up it stays clean.
