Groups across Bulwell joined forces to help clean up the area around the River Leen on Monday 13 July from 10am.

The clean-up was part of Bulwell’s Day of Action and is a partnership approach to resolving issues in the area and keep it clean and safe.

The Neighbourhood Management Team for the area was joined by pupils from Cantrell Primary School and Rufford Primary School, Tesco, Community Protection, Nottinghamshire Police, Local Ward Councillors for Bulwell, Bestwood Partnership, Nottingham City Homes, Bulwell Bogs Group and Keep Britain Tidy.

The groups joined forces to help litter pick the bank areas around the river and the pathways.

Cllr Nicola Heaton, Portfolio Holder for Community Services at Nottingham City Council, said: “This annual event is a fantastic example of partners coming together and making a difference in their area that residents can notably see.

These events are a great way to build community spirit in the neighbourhood and an active commitment towards looking after the local environment.

We hope more groups will target areas around them and contribute to making Nottingham the cleaner place we all want.”
