Townsed Spring Clean 2017

Despite the wind and rain the un-Spring-like weather didn't stop the Clean-Up going ahead in Townsend.

During the morning residents were able to get rid of unwanted bulky goods, 3 large skips were filled in just a few hours! As the weather eased more residents came out of their homes to help with lifting and carrying. Other residents carried out a litter pick of the local area; 20 black sacks were filled with litter!

The Townsend Youth Centre also took part in the Spring Clean by litter picking and cleaning-up the skate park and play area. Jewell Academy also took some pupils out to carry out a litter pick of the roads by their school. Thanks to Littledown Leisure Centre who rewarded these children with a complimentary swim voucher.

Thanks also go to Townsend Community Association for the use of the Centre and for making food & drinks. As always, the support of Bournemouth Borough Council was much appreciated. Special thanks also to Lansdowne Church and all Townsend residents who came together to work as a team to pull off another successful clean-up event!

The clean-up was possible thanks to the action group, The Townsend Together Team and funding from the charity The Townsend Community Association, Bournemouth Borough Council Housing Department and Local Improvement Funding.
