Clayton Green cleaned up thanks to helpers
Clayton Green has been given a tidy up thanks to volunteers who carried out a litter pick.
Council staff worked in partnership with Asda Clayton Green, Accent Homes and Aspire Go Green project to collect the litter from the area adjacent to the A6.
Volunteers were provided with a litter picker, gloves and a bag whilst others took part in painting bird boxes before securing them in suitable locations in order to attract wildlife to the area.
Bird boxes were provided as part of an earlier event in partnership with Aspire Youth Group and University of Central Lancashire who arranged a Go Green environmental day encouraging local residents to ‘up cycle’ and paint bird boxes to form part of a community bird box trail.
Councillor Adrian Lowe, who oversees clean up schemes at Chorley Council said: “By working with local people on projects such as this, we can encourage everybody to club together to get involved and take pride in their local community.”
Council employees were encouraged to volunteer to support the event in exchange for a Spice time credit which is part of a volunteer scheme that rewards time given with time back to use on a wide range of activities such as swimming, art classes or to watch live music.
