Mayor of Poole, Cllr Xena Dion unveiled two new information boards at Holes bay and organised a litter pick as part of the Great Heath project.
Two new information boards were installed by Borough of Poole, sponsored by McDonalds, were unveiled by Mayor of Poole, Cllr Xena Dion alongside Holes Bay Local Nature Park. The boards were designed by Dorset Wildlife Trust to add to the two already installed as part of the Great Heath Project, with support from Borough of Poole.
The new boards inform readers of the rare wildlife, local history and how to protect the area, with acts such as avoiding disturbing birds of the harbour following the Poole Harbour Bait digging code.
Before 22 McDonald’s staff and children embarked on a litter pick along Holes Bay, Cllr Dion unveiled the new information boards with the help of a staff member’s child. Highlighting the importance of Poole Harbour’s wildlife, and the significance of the Harbour to the environment as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, Cllr Dion thanked Dorset Wildlife Trust for their valuable work and dedicated part.
Mayor of Poole, Cllr Xena Dion said “I was really impressed to see so many staff from McDonalds getting behind the company’s commitment to the local community by helping with the litter pick. Over 15 bags of rubbish were collected and hopefully our local residents and visitors will appreciate the work done here today and, of course, the information boards. Thanks to McDonalds this isn’t a ‘one off’ event, I look forward to the future litter picks that they are contributing to.”
