The Council's contractor Veolia deploys an enhanced sweeping service every Autumn, employing 26 additional sweepers to concentrate on areas where leaf-fall is heaviest. Despite their best efforts, Veolia finds it is never easy to keep on top of it, particularly during the type of windy weather we've been experiencing, and has also asked its local street champion volunteers to help.
Street Champions are everywhere. They’re the people who check on elderly neighbours when the weather’s cold; who take parcels in when the recipients are out; who care about their street and want it to be a clean, safe and neighbourly place. If you are one of these people, the council can help you to make your community spirit go even further; learn more and join up as a street champion here.
