Charlize Church contacted her MP Stephen McPartland to ask for his help to raise awareness of the effect of the lockdowns on school children and problems with littering in public spaces.
Stephen McPartland said, "It was wonderful to meet Charlize and Rainbow Dash. Topics ranged from the impact on COVID of family overseas visiting her across to how we can all do more every day to support the more isolated members of our community.
"Like me, Charlize is passionate about keeping our town tidy and wants more bins, emptied more often and used more mindfully by us all. Whether it is disposing of a used mask or a still-smoking cigarette that can blow off the top of a bin and hurt Rainbow Dash.
"I was very impressed and will be taking some of her ideas up locally and nationally. I look forward to inviting her to Parliament for an update when we are allowed visitors again."
Charlize added, "It was fun talking to Stephen, he was nice. I hope one day we will enjoy smoke-free streets in town centres and big parks in England."
