News release


Town Centre Cleans

23 May 2014

Following on from the success of last year, a further programme of town centre cleans has been confirmed for Allerdale towns in 2014.

Allerdale Borough Council’s streetscene teams and environmental partners F.C.C. and I.S.S. will be carrying out a range of works such as power-washing road signs and cleaning street furniture including bins, benches and bus stops, as well as litter-picking and weeding.

As last year, the Council would welcome any volunteers who would like to get involved and help out. All equipment and cleaning materials will be provided – just need to wear suitable clothes. Refreshments will be provided for all those helping out. Anyone who would like to volunteer should confirm in advance with Joe Broomfield, Town Centre Area Manager, ( / 01900 702568) so that there is sufficient cleaning equipment available.

Town Centre cleans will take place as follows:

  • 30 May: Keswick – meet at Keswick Town Hall
  • 6 June: Cockermouth – meet at Riversmeet Community Resource Centre
  • 13 June: Aspatria – meet at Aspatria Library
  • 20 June: Maryport – meet at the Wave Centre
  • 27 June: Workington – meet at Allerdale House
  • 4 July: Silloth – meet at A.O.N.B. offices in the Solway Coast Discovery Centre
  • 11 July: Wigton – meet at Café Twelve62 at Wigton Market Hall

For all of the above dates the meeting time is 10 a.m. Cleans are expected to last for around 3 to 4 hours but volunteers can come for as short a period as they would like.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Executive member with responsibility for town centres and economic growth, said: One of our priorities is thriving town centres that are attractive and welcoming. These clean ups were a huge success last year and it is brilliant to see people getting involved and volunteering to help out.
