Community Action Day for Childwell Alley

The Town Centre Manager Sam Lancaster is arranging a Community  Action Day on Monday 4th October. and is appealing for volunteers. She says: “We are having another Resident Action Day on Monday 4th October. This time our focus is Childwell Alley that runs from Rosebery Avenue to Brook Street. The alleyway is completely covered in graffiti. I have attached a photo which shows a small section but the alleyway is over 200 metres long.

This is a very well used alleyway and definitely needs some attention but is a big job so we need as many volunteers as we can.

If you would like to volunteer litter-picking or clearing foliage then we are meeting at 8am at Priory Street Car park opposite the Priory 

If you would like to volunteer for painting then we are meeting at Priory street Car-park at 9am opposite the Priory 

All equipment will be provided. If you have any questions please ring Lars Musgrove on 07917232355

All residents in the vicinity of the alleyway will also be asked.

Any time that you can spare on that day would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards
