Two people have been awarded for keeping the borough clean.

Lisa Hakwins, from Hornchurch, was seen cleaning up after her dog Todd, at Haynes Park in March, and was entered into the Cleaner Havering prize draw by council staff. She won the first prize - £50 worth of Asda vouchers.

The second winner was Justin Nutall, from Dagenham, who was visiting Romford when he binned his rubbish in South Street. He won a hamper from Asda.

The initiative is part of the Cleaner Havering campaign, aimed at tackling dog fouling, litter and vandalism.

If people are spotted by council staff taking pride in the borough their details are taken and entered into a prize drawer.

Lisa said: “I think it’s a great scheme, and making people aware of issues like keeping our streets and parks clean can only be a good thing.”
