Heading away for this long weekend? Please make sure you don't leave any rubbish behind when you visit our great parks and forests.

We all need to do our bit when it comes to looking after the environment. Removing the rubbish we generate whilst enjoying the outdoors will ensure the area is left clean and tidy of the enjoyment of others.

Make camping easy with these handy tips.

Replace glass stubby's with aluminium cans that are easily crushed and stored to carry out.

Use re-usable plates and cutlery instead of plastic or paper.

Take a roll of plastic garbage bags with you to place your rubbish in. These are also handy for dirty recovery gear etc.

Don't put glass or cans etc  in your campfire as they do not burn.

And finally make sure you have fun but extinguish your campfire with water before leaving your campsite.
