Around 50 enthusiastic volunteers got involved with our community clean up of Henlys Alley on Saturday 6th April 2019 supported by BSAG (Burns Way and Shelly Crescent Action Group), Hounslow Highways, Henlys McDonald’s and Hounslow Council. On a beautiful April morning we collected over 50 bags of rubbish, with many bottles, crisp packets and plastic containers being picked up. Everyone was in good spirit and enjoyed themselves during the event.
After the clean up, our volunteers were kindly treated to a free McDonald’s lunch funded by Hounslow Council Community Impact Fund. The McDonald’s staff were kind, helpful and positive during our stay. It was a great end to a wonderful day, everyone felt pleased and proud of themselves. It was especially brilliant to see new people join in to kick start their Big Local journey.
We would like to thank BSAG (Burns Way and Shelly Crescent Action Group), Hounslow Highways, Henlys McDonald’s and Hounslow Council for their exceptional support.
