Council urges residents to join in ‘Clean Sweep’

Clean Sweep Day

Bradley Stoke Town Council is holding a ‘Clean Sweep’ litter picking day between 2:30pm and 6:30pm this Thursday (30th April).

Residents are encouraged to “join in the fun” by forming litter picking groups for their local streets or helping out at organised clear ups around the Council’s activity centres at Brook Way, Baileys Court and the Jubilee Centre.

South Gloucestershire Council will provide skips at each of the activity centres as well as gloves and black bags for the volunteers.

Community and street groups looking to stage a clean up action are invited to contact the Council on 01454-868082. Bags will be provided free of charge and the Council says it can arrange for the gathered litter to be picked up at a “pre-arranged convenient time”.

Jubilee Green Pond

A survey of the Council’s Jubilee Centre site at the weekend by the Journal’s reporter revealed plenty of tasks for the volunteers to tackle.

The pond in the corner of the Jubilee Green (pictured above), cleared in a youth-inspired community action less than a year ago, is once again full of junk, including three Tesco trolleys. A further trolley was seen lying in a ditch close to Little Stoke Primary School, while two large patio heaters had been dumped at the side of the upper football pitch.
