Clean up

Town-wide clean-up

Restrictions are starting to ease, but you must still remember: Hands. Face. Space. Fresh air. Check the current rules.

Our town-wide clean-up took place over the summer of 2019 and was a great example of communities working together to make the town a better place for everyone.

Well over 500 kind-hearted volunteers took part to do their bit to make our town a cleaner, nicer place by carrying out a range of activities including litter picking, weeding and generally making their communities cleaner.

Our volunteers didn't just come from across the town, some even came from as far afield as Texas, USA. The volunteers included local community groups, residents, businesses, church organisations and reggae legend Pato Banton.

Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our volunteers over 550 bags of litter were collected over the Summer with everyone playing their part to keep Boro beautiful!

We also got some great feedback from the volunteers who took part:
"Great work by the volunteers, let's keep it going."
"Brilliant initiative to encourage people to get on board with taking responsibility for their own surroundings and communities."

Below are a selection of photos shared showing our fantastic, enthusiastic volunteers in action and making a real difference to their communities.

But we don't want all of this good work to end just because the summer is over - if you'd like to get involved and do your bit in your community by yourself or with friends, contact your nearest Community Hub.

Hub staff will provide you with a litter pick pack and any other equipment you may need so you can help to make our town shine!
