Footpath Clean Up in Ravenscliffe

A community led clean up took place in Ravenscliffe on Thursday 3 March.  A local resident was so fed up with the build-up of litter and dog fouling along a footpath ( from Roundwood Avenue to Eccleshill Hospital) and wanted to do something about it.  Anita Bolland (Eccleshill Ward Community Development Worker) worked with the resident to encourage other people at the Gateway Centre to volunteer. The Council, including a youth worker, offered support with the clean-up.

During the clean-up, The Big Swing workers also asked the clean-up volunteers to help them move a 30ft pole from Newlands Business Park to The Big Swing grounds.

Anita stated, “There was a great sense of community spirit and good will amongst the helpers, many hands really did make light work.  Thanks to the resident who initiated this”.
