A Big Clean Sweep in CleveleysPublished Tuesday, 23 May 2017
A Big Clean Sweep day will be held in Cleveleys on Thursday 1 June.
Volunteers are invited to join a ‘Big Clean Sweep’ day in Cleveleys. The event has been organised by the newly formed Cleveleys’ Coastal Communities team set up following a successful funding bid.
One of the team’s priorities is to look at the cleanliness of the town. Activities on the day will include litter picking, planting up the large grey planters, power washing and cleaning up shop fronts. The Big Clean Sweep will take place on Thursday 1 June between 10 am and 2pm. Anyone interested in getting involved with planting, weeding or sweeping can contact the Cleveleys Coastal Community Team Chair - Jane Littlewood - on 07932 143431 or firstname.lastname@example.org or just turn up outside Tesco at 9.45 am on the day.
In January 2017 Cleveleys was awarded £10,000 from the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) to create a new Coastal Community Team. The team has since co-ordinated a town centre retail questionnaire, which has informed the development of an action plan. This will take into account both short and longer term community priorities taking on board any existing plans and seeking to improve their impact. The newly created Cleveleys Coastal Community Team has representatives from Cleveleys-based businesses and retailers, Rossall Beach Residents and Community Group, LeftCoast, visitor attractions, schools and churches.
