Date published: 08 July 2019


Members of the Rochdale Environmental Action Group (REAG) and residents of Clifford Street, Deeplish, trimmed branches, cleared weeds and cleaned the street on Saturday (6 July).

Many residents of Clifford Street have also put flowers outside their houses., with REAG members saying it was “good to see residents taking interest in improving the environment.”

REAG recently adopted a back alley for planting flowers on nearby Cecil Street. Residents came forward and cleaned the back alley, installing flowery hanging baskets and plant pots to improve the alley.

Ghulam Rasul Shahzad OBE, REAG secretary, said: “It gives us great pleasure to see residents becoming part of their campaign to improve the environment of our beautiful and historically rich town.

“We have a social and moral responsibility to ensure our beautiful town becomes number one in the country as a flowery town. Thanks to all members of the REAG, residents, councillors, and environment services of Rochdale Council for their continued support.”
