Swindon Conservatives have announced their support for a local "City of Swindon" bid, and pledge not to use any expensive consultants or tax payers money in the submission. The competition for towns to become cities has been launched to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
The BBC Blue Planet programme did a great job in raising awareness of how plastics and litter affect wildlife and our oceans. 3 years ago the Conservatives led a Council debate for action on single use plastics. Swindon Council has now reduced single use plastics by 90%!
