Four-day clean-up of Truro and Newham
Tuesday 16th November, 2021
Organisers of a four-day clean-up of Truro and Newham say they hope it has inspired people to keep their streets tidy.
Teams of volunteers kitted out with bin bags and litter picks collected up to 67 bags of waste during the event last month. The clean-up was organised by Truro and Newham’s Business Improvement Districts (BIDs).
Up to 17 firms and 11 community groups from across the area took part.
Mel Richardson, BID manager for Newham, said it was a great opportunity for people across the city to come together for a good cause. “Everyone who took part really helped to make a difference,” said Mel. “It makes you stop and think about our local environment and how we can all do our bit.”
The clean-up was the third time that Truro and Newham BIDs had worked closely together. There are plans for more joint events in the future.
