Proudly supporting Pride

Proudly supporting Pride

Somerset Council and its collections contractor SUEZ Recycling and Recovery are proud to be supporting this weekend’s Taunton Pride event.

Between them they will be helping to keep the event site clean and tidy by providing a recycling and rubbish service during Saturday’s extravaganza in Vivary Park.

The ‘in kind’ sponsorship was a suggestion from SUEZ staff, and Somerset Council is happy to get involved with the event which is expected to attract thousands.

Matt Canning, Contract Director from SUEZ recycling and recovery UK said: “We are proud to be supporting the event again this year by clearing the rubbish and recycling.

“Our brightly coloured ‘one community, one love’ lorry, that was specially designed last year, will be out and about again making collections. We’re so pleased to be able to help the rescheduled event and continue to strengthen our commitment to the community”.

Somerset Council’s Executive Member for Environment and Climate Change, Dixie Darch said: “It’s our priority to make sure Somerset remains a welcoming and caring community and we were happy to be asked to support the event.”

Rob Ewers on behalf of Taunton Pride CIC said: “SUEZ and Somerset Council have consistently supported Taunton Pride, including providing access to the park and our rescheduling to September. We are grateful to have them as part of our on-site team and know they are allies and safe, reliable partners.”

The day kicks-off with the now annual Pride parade through Taunton at 11.30am, followed by and afternoon of music, workshops and exhibitions from midday.
