Part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean, the project was organised by four local residents who wanted to to take action regarding the cleanliness and fly tipping in the estate but also provide aresidents after lockdown, especially as so many people preferred being outdoors still.
27 local residents took part in the litter pick and recycled art workshop at Cumberland Workbench, with another 6 residents stopping by to talk, speak about key issues facing them and fellow residents or just to say how great it was to see people taking care of the area.
Since the first Spring Clean, the champions regularly take the litter pickers and bags to every pop up in Cumberland Market, and they have become regularly used by some of the children to clean up the park fortnightly!
“It was a fabulous day, the estate looks great. I’ve not left the house for a while and I got to meet new neighbours.“
Come along, we’ll find a place for you. Sign up to the next Spring Clean or learn more about what it’s like to be a Community Champion.
