Brownhills West Estate Cleanup Day today!

Cherwell Drive on the West: image from Google Streetview.

Late notification I know, but today there’s a littler pick/tidy up afoot in Brownhills West and volunteers are needed – meet at Shannon Drive Centre at 10am.

The event is organised by Brownhills West Community Group and is Walsall Council supported. Equipment provided, just bring energy and willing.

A message to the organisers: I’ve been trying to track this one down for a couple of days now – Brownhills Neighbourhood Policing Team have been tweeting about it, but not a location or start time, and they don’t seem to answer answer tweets. Publicity helps, people. Just drop me a line and I’ll do the rest.

Less hashtags, more notification, please folks. BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Knock twice and ask for grumpy.

    A Fantastic idea i wish WHG or WALSALL COUNCIL could have done it by volunteering to do in the first time. But they would only pass the buck to each other saying it is not our responsibility by both sides

  2. Er, what?

    The event is fully supported by both WHG and Walsall Council.

    I think you’ll find the problem lies squarely at the feet of those littering.

    Clean and Green work damned hard in a losing battle against those with no respect and a ‘someone else’s job’ mentality.

    Cheers

    i could not agree more Bob but W H G took the litter bins away from outside the shops saying “that people will take their rubbish home with them and recycle it ” and the amount of litter that gets left within the shops area proved it was the wrong decision, But they still will not reinstate litter bins hence the amount of litter that piles up there so would you say that was a good decision or not. the rubbish is continually swept up by residents who live over the shops and not by the shop management who sell the stuff. I know its the fault of the people who live on the estate but parents should teach the youngsters to be more thoughtful i know its not only the kids who are dropping the litter adults are seen doing it also .Also the amount of fly tipping by residents expecting W H G OR WALSALL COUNCIL to come round and dispose of it is beyond belief why can,t they take to the local tip or break the card board boxes down for the green bins.
    come and have a look for yourself one day.
