Mayor joins people at Community Litter Pick
Young people from Rochdale Connections Trust joined with participants of the Prince’s Trust, volunteers from the Hebron Church, Cutgate Bowling Club, The Bond Board, Rochdale Hornets and Rochdale Gateway with staff from the Co-op Food stores and Funeralcare Homes alongside many others on Thursday 11 April to undertake a ‘Great British Clean-up’ Rochdale style.
The Mayor joined the groups, local residents and Councillors and officially opened the event outside the Co-op Store at Cutgate.
In excess of 120 people turned up to help and were able to clean the streets around the store before making their way into Denehurst Park.
Bev Place, Rochdale’s Member Pioneer for the Co-op said: “The number of groups and individuals who came out to help at this community clean-up event was astonishing and clearly reinforces what fantastic community spirit and local pride exists here in Rochdale, alongside a desire and willingness to cooperate to achieve results that benefit us all.
“We plan to hold another event in the summer.
“The event was held to coincide with the national Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean campaign that runs between 23 March and 23 April and was supported by the Co-op Rochdale.”
