Spring clean organised for the Stanney Grange area of Ellesmere Port
26 March 2015
Volunteers are being asked to come forward to help spring clean Stanney Grange in Ellesmere Port on Thursday April 9.
There will be competitions, prizes to be won and free refreshments. Everyone is meeting at 10am at Stanlaw Abbey Children’s Centre.
The event will last until 3pm and has been organised by Cheshire West and Chester Council and Plus Dane. To sign up all you need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0151 357 8746. You can also turn up on the day.
There will be skips available at three locations to help reduce the volume of unwanted and discarded items and fly tipped waste on community areas that can cause eye sores across the area.
Ellesmere Port Town Councillor Justin Madders said: “Flytipping and litter have a huge environmental impact and can really impact on an area.
“The standard of cleanliness has been the number one source of complaints over the last few years so I am glad we are able to come together as a community to tackle it. We were delighted to win the funding from Plus Dane’s small scale improvement budget to enable us to organise the day.
“What made it even more important was the fact that this grant was awarded on the back of support for the project by residents. We felt it was the perfect time of the year for this activity with the onset of hopefully better weather, meaning that everyone can benefit from community areas, helping to make residents proud of the area they live in.”
Peter Shaw, Director of Plus Dane Ellesmere Port and Neston said: “We are keen to raise awareness of the negative impact that fly tipping has on the environment and the neighbourhoods as well as the cost to the public purse.
“We are organising skips on the day and staff from Plus Dane and Cheshire West and Chester Council will be lending a hand to tidy up the neighbourhood, so we are asking residents in the area to roll up their sleeves and come along to help.”
