Yesterday we held a ‘Community Clear Up Day’ at Slade Valley, Ilfracombe. The team of volunteers, which included staff from North Devon Homes, members of Ilfracombe Town Council and people living in the local community, helped with litter picking, hedge and weed trimming, collecting unwanted household goods and a general tidy up of the estates. A skip was provided for local residents to dispose of their unwanted items.
Volunteers who helped at the event enjoyed a chip shop lunch whilst sitting in the sunshine. Local residents thanked the group for their efforts and hard work.
All parties worked together during the 5 hour event collecting lots of bags of rubbish and collected numerous unwanted items which filled the skip provided. In addition, pathways were weeded and hedges trimmed.
Thank you to everyone who supported the event and worked together to help improve their local community.
