James St Community Clean Up

James St Community Clean Up

While the hot weather may be long gone, residents in Darwen are caring for their community all year round. The cold weather hasn’t stopped residents on the St James Estate from taking pride in their neighbourhood, with residents recently taking part in a huge estate clean up.

On 8th December, 30 volunteers dedicated their Saturday mornings to cleaning up their neighbourhood and took part in the James St Community Clean Up. The event was a huge success with four skips filled to the brim and rubbish cleared from the area. Volunteers got stuck into the dirty work, and enjoyed lunch and refreshments provided by Together Housing in return for their efforts.

Deborah Brown, Neighbourhood Officer, said: “The event was a great opportunity for neighbours to come together and make new friendships, while looking after the area where they live. Community events means residents are involved in their neighbourhoods, as well as building relationships and developing friendly  community.

“We were overwhelmed with the turnout on Saturday and would like to thank all of the local residents who gave their time and hard work to really make a difference to their neighbourhood. We had great fun while getting our hands dirty – we could have done with 10 skips with the amount of rubbish our volunteers cleared!”
