The management committee of the Roupell Park Estate is holding a spring clean event on 19th May from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
The aim is to get together to tidy up the estate – clear up those small but annoying bits of rubbish in the flower beds; tidy round the blocks and smarten up the estate even more.
Above all, the aim is to bring the community together and take pride in the estate. All ages and families are welcome. Equipment such as gloves, brooms and litter pickers will be provided.
Meet at 10.30am at the Roupell Park Community Centre by Hyperion House, off Upper Tulse Hill, where equipment will be provided and groups formed. The coffee morning senior citizens group will be supporting with refreshments at the community centre.
Yesterday ITV London news paid a surprise visit to Sulina Road and interviewed local residents including residents’ association lead Charmian Kenner about their work to clean and brighten up their road.
Watch their report below (crank up the volume).
The Council is looking for people who care about their area and are keen to take action to improve their neighbourhoods. By becoming a Street Champion, residents will have a direct impact on the way their street looks by working with their neighbours and the council to find solutions to litter, dog mess and fly-tipping on their streets.
We hope Street Champions will get involved in a range of activities which might include:
- Developing new types of signage to deter dog fouling and fly-tipping
- Sticking notes on bins that are left on the pavement all week
- Talking to neighbours about keeping a look-out for persistent fly-tippers or dog foulers
- Encouraging neighbours to recycle more
Street Champions will come up with their own solution to resolve problems in their area.
The Street Cleansing/Environmental team will be following up the letter the Council is sending out with a visit to residents to persuade them to engage with the scheme.
Any resident wanting to know more about the scheme or wishing to sign up as a Street Champion should please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 020 7936 3069.
