Spring & Summer Litter Picks – Pride in our Community

LitterIt is well known that I am unhappy with the standard of street cleaning the ward has been receiving and that I am on the case with the cabinet member responsible and the council’s contractor.

That said, litter and fly-tipping is down to a minority of residents who don’t care about our area or their neighbours and there is just no excuse for it when there are plenty of bins available. The same applies to dog owners not clearing up after their pet.

As Spring arrives and the trees and shrubs are still leafless, there is no better time for the community to come together and show the pride we have in our ward by carrying out litter picks during the spring and summer months.

If you care about our ward and want to help show that pride by joining me one Saturday or Sunday morning or afternoon, please get in touch. The first one’s are coming up on Saturday 28th February and ┬áSunday 8th March.

Update – The National Community Clear Up Day is on Saturday 21st March so we’ll include that day too.National Community Clear Up Day
