As part of the Derby Spring Clean this coming weekend, local residents, school children and local charities remedi and Age UK are taking part in litter picks in and around the Chaddesden area.

The Council is facilitating a variety of community activities across the city this weekend, demonstrating how local people can work with us to keep their local neighbourhoods cleaner, safer and friendlier for everyone who lives there.

Councillor Sara Bolton, Chair of the Chaddesden Neighbourhood Board says of the activities on Friday,

“I am so pleased to say that we have four litter picks happening in Chaddesden on Friday afternoon.  Pupils and teachers from Lees Brook School and Chaddesden Park Primary School are coming along to help out. Members of the neighbourhood team and representatives from local charity remedy, Age UK and Derby Homes are also getting involved.

Taking pride in the area you live in is something we can all do and whilst I absolutely accept that the Council has a role to play, we all need to work together as resources are stretched more than ever before.

Chaddesden has always been a community where people look out for each other; now we are looking out for where we live as well.”

Litter picks are taking place on Friday 3rd March as follows:

  • Morley Road and Chapel Lane with the neighbourhood team and Lees Brook School from 12.30pm to 1pm;
  • Chaddesden Park with Chaddesden Park Primary School from 12.30pm to 1pm;
  • Chaddesden Park with representatives from Age UK from 1pm;
  • Cavan Drive and Waterford Drive with Derby Homes from 2pm to 2.30pm.
