Big clean sweep in Cleveleys
Published Thursday, 01 June 2017

Organised by the newly formed Cleveleys Coastal Communities team, a 'Big Clean Sweep' day was held in Cleveleys on Thursday 1 June.

Following a successful funding bid in January of this year from the Department of Communities and Local Government (DGLG) to create the team, they have been able to co-ordinate this successful event.

One of the team’s priorities is to look at the cleanliness of the town. Activities on the day included litter picking, planting up the large grey planters, power washing and cleaning up shop fronts.

Chair of Cleveleys Coastal Community team, Jane Littlewood, commented: ‘Today is the first public event which has been organised by Cleveleys Coastal Community team. We have had a good turnout of eager volunteers. Between us we have made a significant difference to the look of the town and at the same time encouraged people to be community minded.'

In January, Cleveleys was awarded £10,000 from the Department of Communities and Local Government 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 Cleveleys Coastal Community team has representatives from Cleveleys-based businesses and retailers, Rossall Beach Residents and Community Group, Wyre Council, LeftCoast, visitor attractions, schools, and churches.
