When you've had enough of the men's platform synchro diving, archery and other sporting delights, flick over to BBC1 at 8.30pm tonight to watch Panorama. The author Bill Bryson (who's also the President of the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE)) will be taking a cold, hard look at the mess we’re making of our glorious land. Apparently we drop 25 million tonnes of litter each year and spend £650 million trying to clean it up. So Bill and the CPRE launched their ‘Stop the Drop’ campaign on 16th April which we applaud (loudly).
Anyone can get involved. Detailed information is available at www.cpre.org.uk on how we can all help, including emailing your MP or organising a litter pick in your neighbourhood. So watch the show tonight, visit the site and don't make a mess, please.
