The wheeled container was donated by Kier Environmental Services

A man who has been pro-actively litter picking in his area was awarded a barrow.

Peter Jordan-Derring, of Mottingham, was given the wheeled container in a surprise presentation.

He has been a long standing Street Friend, part of an initiative created by Bromley Council to help keep streets clean and safe.

Cllr David Cartwright said: “This new initiative epitomises the council’s Street Friends ethos.

“We and local residents have been thoroughly impressed with the dedication that Peter has shown.

“This is positive proof that the people of Mottingham do care, not just about local streets but also by saluting the difference Peter is making.

“Sometimes, the litter has blown into the undergrowth and has proved challenging to get and also, there are areas of land which technically, the council is not responsible for and Peter has tackled these areas too.”
