Residents in a North Somerset village will talk about the problems of plastic next month.

Plastic Free Long Ashton (PFLA) has been launched in a bid to cut down plastic being used in the village.

The campaign, which is being spearheaded by Rosie Payne, will host a meeting in the Jubilee Pavilion, in Keedwell Hill, on April 11.

Creative director Michelle Cassar from City to Sea, Bristol’s leading plastics campaign, will talk about how to make the campaign a success and what steps need to be taken in order to achieve plastic free status.

A PFLA spokesman said: “As a species we are discarding huge quantities of plastic, most of which is not recycled.

“It’s time to eliminate single use plastic from Long Ashton. Change is not easy, but it is possible – at the personal, community and national level.”

The meeting will start at 7.30pm.
