Green and Clean Campaign comes to Gidea Park

Published: Friday, 9 June 2017

Havering Council’s Green and Clean campaign will be coming to Durham Avenue and Elvet Avenue in Gidea Park on Thursday 22 June 2017.

The event is being run in partnership with DELTA TMO (Tenant Management Organisation)

From 10am until 1pm volunteers will be joining Council staff to tidy up the area, plant some flowering plants and shrubs as well as generally make it a more pleasant place to live.

Chair of the DELTA TMO Management Board, Sandy Stevenson, said: “The DELTA TMO estate is maintained by our own staff and we set very high standards for our communal areas and this special day will help us make sure that the estate is looking at its best for the summer.

“We hope residents will come along and join in for an hour or two as the more volunteers we have the more we will be able to achieve.”

Deputy Leader of Havering Council and Cabinet Member for Housing, Councillor Damian White, said: “Havering is very proud of being a green borough and our Community Clean-Ups are a way in which residents can help tidy up their area.

“This month we are focussing on the DELTA TMO estate where the TMO staff do a fantastic job keeping the area looking good and deserve a helping hand which is why we are pleased to hold this event with them.

“Each month until October the Housing Services Community Engagement Team is coordinating clean-ups on different housing estates across Havering and we hope local residents will join in and help us make their area look good.”
