After nearly six months of lockdown, we finally got together to run our Big Local Socially Distanced Community Clean Up Day on Saturday 26th September 2020.
In partnership with Hounslow Highways and Keep Britain Tidy campaign, we collected over 25 bags of rubbish.
In total, we had 20 volunteers (including our local MP Seema Malhotra), 4 groups of 5, staggered throughout the morning and afternoon. The Clean Up was an opportunity to trial our new Covid-19 secure measures to ensure the health and wellbeing and safety of our volunteers and the public.
After our successful trial on Saturday, we will look to run further Clean Up days and other outdoor community events in the near future.

We would like to thank our brilliant and amazing volunteers for their incredible dedication and support and our partners Hounslow Highways, Keep Britain Tidy and Cranford Community College.
