The competition aims to foster a greater appreciation and awareness of our country roads by rewarding and acknowledging local community efforts. This is achieved through keeping a mile stretch of road and its adjacent area litter free, while carefully maintaining the ditches and any other natural or man made features.

The closing date for the 2014 Pure Mile competition is the 20th of December 2013. If you are interested in finding out more please check out  or call 0404 45547
