G-LITTER CARNIVAL SWEEPS THROUGH CITY

Keep Liverpool Clean!

A FIREWORK display on March 27 for the largest clean-up campaign in Britain to date, ended one of the largest pyrotechnic illustrations in Liverpool’s bid to accelerate its way past contenders for the European capital of culture bid.

The community led campaign to rid the city of rubbish and vandalism featured parades, carnival costumes, music and a giant vacuum cleaner known as a Glitterbug ball – to highlight cleaning the city as part of a cultural extravaganza.

The Glitterbug Ball – an enormous fire sculpture depicted as ‘a flower of regeneration - made from recycled material and junk from renowned artistes and designers from around the city – was paraded around city centres most notorious buildings in an effort to add further allure to establishing of finalising ambitions into that of the reality of holding the culture bid.

Councillor Mike Storey, the leader of the city council, said:- "Everyone continues to play in making Liverpool cleaner and greener. The city councils part in investing £70 million over the next decade is a campaign to clean up graffiti on our streets to make shopkeepers more aware of what damage can be done by selling spray paints to teenagers.”

Sue Woodward, creative director of Liverpool Capital of Culture Company, said:- “G-Litter is more than simply a one off clean-up campaign. We want to make a permanent difference. Education is important if we are to succeed in reducing vandalism and litter. Engaging youngsters in a creative way will, in future, get them to think seriously about the local environment and take greater pride in their city.

The whole city is believed to be gearing up to the Capital of Culture in 2008. Where cleaning up Liverpool is seen to be a top priority to forge the bid as the main contender in which residents can take pride in their city.”
