A fantastic result – a huge thank you to all the volunteers that participated.
Starting from eight NG11 locations with Team Leaders, we cleared parts of Wilford, Silverdale, The Grove, Varney, Donington and Farnborough Road, Gardendale Ave and Clifton Lane. We cleared Homewell Walk, Hope Centre and Clifton Community Car-park, Breck’s Wood, Langstrath, Clifton Village, Glapton Lane and greens and Barton Green.
Afterwards, at Summerwood Community Garden, we were provided with tasty stone baked pizza for lunch. NG11 Lidl donated bottles of water and delicious cakes were donated from Tesco Express, Sarah Cox from Good Companions and Francesca Tavoni. Florette’s Creative Enterprise entertained us with super African drumming.
This super event was brought together with the support and help of Audrey Leach and Emma Jordan of Summerwood Community Gardens, Chris Brummitt of The Bridges Community Trust, Prairie Bryant the Neighbourhood Development Officer, Clifton East and Clifton West Wards, Nottingham Together April Holmes, Community Engagement Officer and Team Leaders. And as usual our local Council Street Team promptly collected the litter filled bags afterwards.
April Holmes explains “The Keep Clifton Clean Event is at the heart of what Nottingham Together is about. Local people, businesses, voluntary and private sectors with new and emerging communities all coming together for a joint vision and aim. A huge thank you to the NG11 Clean Champions, The Bridges Community Trust, and Summerwood Community Gardens for all your hard work to support the event. It was a great success and long may it continue.”
Community spirit at its best.
Local residents and businesses all helping to keep NG11 litter free.
Love NG11 and let’s keep it clean.
