Volunteer appeal for park clean-up
Main article content
Would you like to have your say on issues affecting your area in Stafford? Perhaps you’d like to volunteer to clean up parks and green spaces with the help of police and other agencies?
Staffordshire Police and partners, including Streetscene, Stafford Litter Heroes, Youth Net, and local councillors, are holding a day of action on Saturday 29 May to speak to concerned residents and volunteers while helping to clean up two key locations.
Activities during the day will take place across two sites - Charnley Park from 12-2pm and Holmcroft Park from 4-6pm.
The aim is to litter pick both parks, clean up the general area and officers will be on hand to engage with members of the public and young people.
It comes as police have received an increase in reports of anti-social behaviour, criminal damage and litter in both locations.
PCSO Helen Walker, of Stafford Borough Neighbourhood Policing Team, who is organising the day, said: “This is a great opportunity for the public to speak to officers, for us to find out more about the issues concerning them and work together to reduce the impact of littering and other behaviours in both areas.”
Streetscene officers are providing litter pickers and rubbish removal on the day.
Social distancing will be maintained throughout as per government guidelines.
Anyone who is interested in taking part and volunteering should arrive at Charnley by midday on 29 May or Holmcroft by 4pm.
