Arbroath girl crowned July hero

Eight-year-old Chloe Todd from Arbroath has been recognised as our latest Clean Up Scotland hero for her support of Keptie Friends.

Chloe was nominated for the Clean Up Scotland Hero Award by Jean Stewart from Keptie friends for her regular attendance at Pondie Clean Ups and her additional support for Keptie Friends campaigns - from designing her own posters for the We’re Watching You campaign against dog fouling to distributing bags of birdseed to visitors as part of the Bread is Bad for the ducks initiative.

Chloe Todd commented: “I am really pleased to receive this award. I love to visit Keptie Pond to see the birds  and enjoy keeping it clean so that it will always attract wildlife. All of the activities that I have been a part of are fun. I hope that many more people of my age will join me in helping to make sure that our park and pond is kept clean and tidy.”

Jean Stewart from Keptie Friends added: “Chloe is one of our younger members at Keptie Friends and is renowned locally for her exemplary efforts to help us wage war on dog poo. However, she should also be commended for her wider efforts to improve our local environment. From working with her Brownie group to plant wildflowers and build a bee hotel, to helping me launch our Bikes and Bunting campaign.

“Chloe is clearly a committed young volunteer who is an inspiration to us all.”

The Hero of the Month award is supported by The Helping Hand Company which provides each Hero with a Clean Up kit - including a new Scottish litter picker and handy hoop. An image of the Chloe receiving the award can be found here.

If you know a local hero, please nominate them for an award.
