Residents Help Keep Eastwood Tidy

Residents Help Keep Eastwood Tidy

29/07/2016 - Eastwood residents joined forces yesterday as part of a Community Clean event at Hopkins Court, Princes Street, Wellington Street, Albert Street and Scargill Walk.

Deputy Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe, Councillor Halimah Khaled rolled up her sleeves to give a helping hand at the event, organised by Broxtowe Borough Council and its construction partners, United Living, follows the success of other clean up days across the Borough.

The project is aimed at local communities throughout the Borough to join in with the Council to help reduce litter, rubbish and graffiti in their streets, estates, residential areas and pathways.

The Community Clean-Up events have grown from litter-picking and a mini skip to a concerted effort to improve the environment of an area. For those who get involved there is a sense of togetherness and Community spirit.

This year residents'children got involved in helping out by picking litter, and were rewarded with a toy for every bag of rubbish that was returned.

The next clean-up day will take place at Marriott Avenue and Oak Acres in Chilwell on Thursday 1st September 2016.
