Clear-up scheme celebration

EDLINGTON residents took part in a day of events to mark the end of a scheme to tidy up and improve their area.

The event, at the Edlington International City Church, was run to coincide with the completion of the latest Neighbourhood Alliance project in the area.

Activities on the day included arts and crafts for children and teenagers, drama workshops and a range of other activities such as painting.

Residents were also offered the chance to win a trolley full of shopping, while organisations such as the NHS turned out to provide information by holding stalls at the event.

Neighbourhood Alliance is an intensive three-week project that consults with the public in an area of the Doncaster borough on how they feel about where they live and what concerns and problems they have.

It then aims to tackle these issues and leave a legacy for the good work to be continued after the project is completed.

South Yorkshire Police, Doncaster Council, Doncaster NHS, St Leger Homes, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, Doncaster Council for Voluntary Service and many more organisations are involved in the Neighbourhood Alliance project.
