As part of our 10 Make a Difference Days celebrating our 10th birthday in November, neighbours in Pryor Close in Witham joined us for a good old clear-out on Tuesday 22 August. A skip and several bags were filled with unwanted rubbish, and residents also had the opportunity to have a general tidy-up of the area together. Mrs Hitchcock, who lives on Pryor Close, said: “I thought it was excellent idea to have a skip to save people fly-tipping in the area. It was good to see the neighbours out helping and increasing the community spirit. Thank you James for organising a wonderful morning.”
Other Make a Difference Days have included fun days, neighbours sharing a meal, and additional clean-up events.
Arron Samson, Greenfields’ Neighbourhood Manager, is keen that each event genuinely improves the lives of residents: “Each event gives us the chance to support our residents in a variety of ways – be it to tidy their gardens, have a good clear-out, get to know their neighbours or just keep their children busy in the holidays! We also want to draw attention to all the services we and our partners offer, so they know that we’re there when they need us.”
