Pendle Council picks up Plain English Award
3:58pm Friday 6th December 2013 in News
PENDLE Council’s recycling hand-outs have been given a Plain English Award for being clear and well written.
Judges for the Plain English Campaign praised the council’s annual refuse and recycling calendar leaflet and a special recycling edition of the council newspaper Pendle News.
Plain English Campaign founder and director Chrissie Maher said: “Although recycling is not the most exciting of subjects, staff at Pendle Council have produced material that is well written and attractive. If residents need encouragement to read anything about recycling, this is the sort of material that will get their attention.”
Pendle Council is the only local authority to receive a Plain English Award this year.
Coun John David, who represents recycling in Pendle, said: “These documents have a very important message: to encourage people to recycle as much as they can using the right recycling container.
“It’s vital they are clear and easy to follow and our staff are committed to getting this right.”
