Residents in White City are invited to a community pride event taking place this month (Wednesday 27 May), where they can lend a hand at a clean-up day and enjoy a community BBQ.
GreenSquare is running the event with its partners Gloucester City Homes, Gloucester City Council and the Friendship Cafe.
The event is taking place from 10.30am until 3.30pm, alongside and people are asked to meet on the green by the Venture Playground. Residents who live in the area will have the chance to take part in a big clean-up event, to spruce up the neighbourhood, and then enjoy a free community BBQ, provided by local residents and the Venture Playground.
Alex Lodge, Community Involvement Officer at GreenSquare, helped to organise the event. He explained: “We want to ensure that all of the residents can be proud of living in White City and we’ve found that our community clean-up events prove extremely popular with residents of all ages.
“We hope people living in the area will take the time to come along and lend a hand at the clean-up. We’ll be working with local firms to ensure we recover and recycle as much as possible and we will be providing skips for people to use. This is also a great chance for people to talk to members of staff from the local council, GreenSquare and Gloucester City Homes about any issues they have - or share with us what they like the most about living in White City.
“And, as it's half term, we'd like to encourage younger residents can get involved as well. We'll provide them with litter pickers, gloves and high visibility jackets and, of course, they'll receive goody bags at the end!”
Riyyaz Patel, Community Involvement Officer from Gloucester City Homes, said: “We’re pleased to be involved in this partnership event along with the White City Residents Action Group. We want the event to encourage more residents to take pride in their community and get involved in the social side of community partnership too!”
