New era – and name – for environment team

A community group known for its Love Where You Live street tidy-up campaigns and reusable bags initiatives has a new name and a new partnership to celebrate.

Harborough Improvement Team was a victim of Harborough Council cuts last year, so its sub-group, the HiT Environment Group, was forced into forging a new collaboration.

It has now joined up with green group Transition Town Market Harborough.

And it also has a new name – Market Harborough Environment Group .

The move was celebrated at a meeting last month

Member Mary Danks said: “We are very excited to be working alongside our new partner as we enter a new era in our recycling and litter action work.”
