The Sutton community is being encouraged to join in with a clean-up of the town centre this week.

Focusing on the area between Sutton Civic Centre and Sutton High Street, he clean-up will take place on Thursday September 19 (3-7pm).

Anyone attending can be sure of a warm welcome and will be provided with litter pickers, high visibility vests and sacks.

Councillor Manuel Abellan, Chair of the Environment & Neighbourhood Committee at Sutton Council, said:

“These community clean-ups are really great events.

"Yes, they help keep the borough looking its best but they are also great fun; a good way of meeting new like-minded people who care about the area they live or work in.

"We’ll be meeting up at 3pm in the grounds of St Nicholas Church on Thursday 19 September, but people are more than welcome to join us later on; on their way home from work, for example. The more the merrier!”

Support and equipment is available to residents and community groups who would like to organise a community clean-up for their area.
