Residents in area clean-up

Have your say

RESIDENTS and schoolchildren took to the streets of Sheffield’s Wybourn and Richmond Park neighbourhoods to pick up litter, remove graffiti and tidy alleyways.

The clean-up was held as part of Action Week, an initiative organised by landlord Great Places Housing Group to improve the environment and help foster pride in the local area.

Following on from the success of last year’s event, this year’s initiative was supported by organisations including Wybourn Skye Edge Action, Sheffield Council, the fire service, police, Wybourn Youth Trust, and Wybourn Community Primary School.

Great Places manager Karen Walls said: “Action Week was about reclaiming the streets, tackling environmental issues and fostering community safety.”
