Story

Fed up with dirty and littered streets? So are we. In Aberdeenshire Litter Initiative - ALi, we have decided to take government ministers and councils to court and are asking the public to support the cost of legal action by crowd funding. We want the courts to enforce the standards that councils and other public bodies are required to uphold by law. Please join us in our fight by making a small donation of £1 - and PLS TELL US WHERE YOU ARE FROM.

Campaigns, complaints and years of volunteer litter picking have failed to stop the decline in the cleanliness of our streets and open spaces. Councils etc. may ignore the law and the people but they cannot ignore the courts.

Unclean streets impact adversely on physical and mental health; community wellbeing; low level crime; business investment; tourism and so much more. We will use the laws and cleanliness standards that the politicians made to force them to clean up our communities.

We have already started by appointing a legal team and would like £1 from the many thousands of people who care about the state of the environment of the UK and want to change it.

The minimum donation through Just Giving is £2 (it shows £10 but we would be delighted to receive £2) Alternatively, we would be pleased to get donations from individuals direct to our bank account - Bank of Scotland. Account holder: Aberdeenshire Environmental Forum Acc. no. 00898901 Sort Code 80 06 71 IBAN No : GB57 BOFS 8006 7100 898901 BIC No. BOFS GB 21288 The more we are, the greater our influence. Our target is to raise £5000 Mony a mickle maks a muckle.

Cheques should be sent to: Honorary Treasurer, Aberdeenshire Environmental Forum, Windyfold Croft, Keithhall, Inverurie AB51 0LX

OUR PROMISE: We are a constituted community based, voluntary organisation with 28 years of annual reporting of our finances and bank accounts. The money donated will be used only to promote the aims of this campaign. When our efforts are concluded any residual money will be donated to organisations across the UK having similar objectives.

    We are itching to get on with the next stage of our campaign and to tell you all about it. Now that the snow and ice are away, we have been out and about gathering the evidence required for court action. Our principle evidence is based upon Hi Res still photographs and HD dashcam video with GPS referencing. Oh the benefits of digital technology ........and the quality of images is excellent. even in difficult light conditions. This is the slip road on the Motorway just after the Friarton Bridge, Perth No hiding place!
