What a fantastic month it has been for the Maltby Environmentalists!
The group were lucky to appear not once, but twice on BBC Radio Sheffield over the past few weeks! The first appearance saw James having a chat with Rony who had been asking South Yorkshire what we were proud of…well we couldn’t be prouder of our Environmentalists! We’d love to share a link with you to the interview but it’s not on iPlayer any more!
Our second appearance came on the back of chatting with Rony when we invited BBC Radio Sheffield to join us on one of our litter picks to talk with the group and find out a bit more about what’s going on. Kat (the presenter) came down in the BBC Radio Sheffield van and spoke with two of our amazing volunteers, Marta and Olivia, the founder of the group, Freda, as well as James who helps run the group.
It was a lovely day and it was great to see so many children and adults coming out to join in. To say thank you for getting up so early (we were on live at 8.30am during the school holidays!) we treated to group to bacon sandwiches, and they were delicious! We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who came down and got involved – new and old members!
From the piece on the radio we’ve even had other people who live in Maltby get in touch who were inspired to set up their own group!
If you missed the interview you can still listen in, but hurry, it will come off BBC iPlayer in the next week or so! You can listen in by clicking here.
