The recent Local Legend award was presented to Patrick Robinson of Nantwich Litter Action who received his Baked by Gill Cat Cake and Local Legend certificate from The Cat’s MD Chris Cadman. Patrick has kindly donated the cake to the Macmillan nurses at Leighton Hospital and dedicated the award to the active pickers and supporters of Nantwich Litter Action.

Patrick was nominated by John Statham (Town Councillor, Nantwich North & West Ward) who told us “The NLA Facebook group was set up just 12 months ago to harness the power of social media in tackling the litter problems in and around Nantwich. Since then, the group has grown to over 100 members, many of them are out several times a week collecting litter in their area. As the group approaches its first birthday, the NLG team are fast approaching the huge milestone of 1000 large bags of litter collected!

“Patrick has led the group to this success in a very short space of time. He is a passionate leader and keeps everyone organised in their approach, highlighting ‘grot-spots’ to focus on and keeping track of the amount of litter collected.”

Chris Cadman, Managing Director of The Cat said, “Recognising the work done by people like Patrick and his team is the reason we launched this award. People who do great things within the community, making where we live a better place”.

The Local Legend Award looks to recognise the work of local individuals and organisations who have gone that extra mile in support of their communities and is sponsored by ‘Baked by Gill’ with winners being drawn out of a hat to receive a wonderful cake, Cat 107.9FM goodies and a certificate.

The Cat is your Crewe and Nantwich based local radio station, which broadcasts 24 hours a day on 107.9 FM from Cheshire College South & West to Crewe, Nantwich, Sandbach and the surrounding villages and rural areas. It is the only licensed community radio station in the area.
