On Wednesday April 24, 10am to 2pm there will be an Action Day on the Groves, led by the Council with support from Biffa (who empty our bins) and housing providers such as Mosscare St Vincent, Arawak and S4B. Activities will include jet washing, litter-picking, removing bulky waste and advice over a cuppa about your concerns. There will be free give-aways, goodie bags, prizes for children and more.

A lovely sunny day today in the Community Garden where the spring flowers are looking great. They won't be around much longer so why not take advantage of the great weather over the Easter weekend and come out and enjoy the garden?
A big thank you to everyone who turned up to help at our Groves Spring-Clean on Saturday as part of the Great British Spring Clean. About 25 adults and numerous children came to pick up litter and make our streets and alleys look really tidy. We also had support from MSA, MossCare St Vincent, Biffa, local police and Councillors. Thank you to all of them. Around 40 pink 'Community Clean up' bags were filled. Of course the ongoing challenge is to keep it like this. To help encourage people to dispose of their rubbish properly (and catch those who don't!) there will be an Action Day on the Groves on April 24 involving leaflets, signs, lights, cameras and more. Watch out for more info about this soon.
