Sunray: clean-up goes on!

June 21, 2013

Over 50 enthusiastic residents from the Sunray and Egmont Residents’ Association (SERA) came out on the 9th June to help clear away rubbish and overgrown vegetation across 8 roads within the estate.

One Knollmead resident brought a mini digger to assist with clearance and another joined in with an industrial hedge cutter to help clear away the overgrown vegetation. 240 large bags of rubbish and vegetation were cleared away by the local residents, as well as various dumped bulk items such as mattresses, settees and builders rubble. All the waste was then collected by the Council the following morning – it took 3 separate lorry loads to clear!

Conservative Councillor Richard Hudson, Chris Hayes and ex-Councillor Ian George joined in to give a hand and to witness the efforts made by the community to improve their neighbourhood. SERA gained a further 3 members on the day and the morning clearance signified the largest turnout of residents to date.

The clearance of the estate will continue with dates to be announced later by SERA – any support is greatly appreciated. Any contribution made, small or large is equally important and Councillor Hudson encourages everyone to get involved for a couple of hours to clean up your local neighbourhood and to support the local community.
