Alley clean-up, 18th March 2017

We’re having a clean-up this Saturday, 18th March 2017, from 10am to 12.30pm.

We’ll be tackling alleyways, as many as we can get done with the volunteers who turn up. We’ll arrange items of kit for the clean-up, so all residents need to do is turn up for the event. The alleys we plan to tackle, if there are enough people, are Cranswick St/Broadfield Rd, Henbury St/Markington St, and Markington St/Driffield Street.

Want the alley behind your home to be clean and safe? Come and help out!

September alley clean-ups

Somewhat belatedly (sorry boss!) is this wee report from two alley-clearing sessions by the volunteers amongst Cranswick Square residents. In September, groups mucked in to clean up the alleys between Markington and Henbury streets and between Cranswick St and Broadfield Road. Cranswick Square residents group would like to extend its thanks to Biffa for taking away large amounts of debris from the Cranswick St/Broadfield Rd clear-up.

As one volunteer commented, “We hope that in future residents will try to dispose of their rubbish by the various means provided by the City Council, instead of fly-tipping”.

You can see before and after shots (and some extra local colour) below:

Cranswick/Broadfield alley clean-up

Residents from Cranswick Street and Broadfield Road have been busy cleaning up the alleyway between the two streets – removing, amongst other things, a weights deck, a miniature trampoline and a lot of sad, broken toys. Richard kindly took some before, during and after photos to show the effects of the work. Next stop, hopefully, will be flower planters and other additions to make the alleyway a nicer space to use.

Save Fallowfield Library demonstration…

As the organisers had to say on Facebook – this is just the beginning! Too many people use and need this library to take it away from the community.

Save Fallowfield Library demonstration, 7th March

Fallowfield Library is a vital local resource – not just for books and literacy, but also as a space where community groups meet, and a place where people who can’t afford computers and broadband can get online for information, contact and job applications.

Winter conditions: gritting

During the current icy weather, residents of the Cranswick Square area may find it useful to know that there is a grit bin on the corner of Broadfield Road and Bowes Street. Any local residents can use it, and the council will top it up if the grit gets used up.
