Highly Commended – Raymond Lloyd
Raymond Lloyd is a positive role model to the people of Blaenrhondda for his commitment to recycling and keeping his local area clean. He is wheelchair bound and suffers from a number of medical problems, but this does not stop him from keeping the area of Blaenrhondda litter free. He has a litter picker and the use of an electric buggy with a special adaptation to hold recycing bags, which he utilises to collect litter from his local area. He then sorts the litter at home and puts it out with his weekly recycling. Not only is he making a massive difference by recycling items of litter, but he is also tackling the village litter problems, and he proves that everyone can make a difference.
