We take great pride in the areas where you live and loved seeing our tenants and local partners get stuck in during our community clean-up day in Wade Hall.

We thank everyone for taking part and remind tenants and residents to please continue to help make the area a nice place to live.

The one-day event was well attended and we filled six large skips, and a further small skip.

Volunteers from our contractors Nurture Group and 3D Environmental Ltd helped our teams pick up large bulky waste to go in our large skips.

A member of South Ribble Council’s Social Prescribing Team was on hand to discuss what support is available and our Progress Futures Team was also based within the community centre to offer employment, training, and apprenticeship advice.

Pupils from St Mary’s Catholic High School in Leyland joined us for a litter pick around the area, filling 36 bags of rubbish.

Our tenants also helped, moving large bulky waste.

Dean told us: “This does help a lot of people, especially those who work or have children and don’t have the time to get to the tip. It also brings the community together as everyone helps each other out.”

Chris added: “I missed the previous clean-up day, so I am glad I managed to get to this one. It saves a lot of hassle, and it cleans the estate up, instead of having fly tipping. It is so helpful.”

We hold these clean-up days to support our communities, but respectfully ask tenants to take responsibility of their bulky waste and not fly tip. Fly tipping is an offence and anyone caught doing so can be fined.

Peter Bond, Regional Housing Manager, said: “We would like to thank all tenants, residents and partners for supporting the Wade Hall community clean-up day. It was great to see everyone working in partnership to make the area better.

“We would also like to take the opportunity to remind residents that this was a one-day event. Unfortunately, in the days that followed event the area were the skips were located have experienced significant fly tipping.

“This has caused concern for residents living locally and we would ask those individuals responsible for this practice not to do this. If you have waste or bulky items you didn’t have an opportunity to dispose of at the event then this can be collected by South Ribbe Borough Council.”
