Litter eating frog bin for Donington on Bain

A ‘FROG’ that can be stuffed with rubbish was discussed at the meeting of Donington on Bain Parish Council.

Councillors had inspected the amenity areas in the village noting where there were problems to be addressed.

These included the need for new waste bins on the recreation sites to replace the open ones which become a gooey mess during wet conditions, plus a child friendly frog near the play equipment to encourage children to ‘feed’ him their litter.

County Coun Hugo Marfleet was to be asked to make a donation from his Big Society Fund for the cost.

The new picnic table and bench made from recycled plastic had been very well received when provided last year, funded by Daniel Simpson, the District Councillor from his Ward Community Fund and it was agreed to ask for a further contribution to replace the second table, with an extended end model for wheel chair users.
