September Action Day photos

A big thank you to everyone who took part in our Action Day on Saturday 29th September. The rubbish included several mattresses, broken televisions, a couple of fridge/freezers and other bits of furniture, as well as piles of green stuff. Here are some photos from the day.

Many thanks also to Veolia, Croydon Council’s street cleaning team, who collected the rubbish the following Monday.

If you see rubbish in Church Alley, please contact aeoinnernorth@croydon.gov.uk to report it.
Thank you.

Photos from our May Action Day

Many thanks to all those who took part in our Action Day on 19th May. There wasn’t as much to clear as in January, but still worth the effort, as you can see from the photos here.

And thanks too to Veolia, Croydon Council’s street cleaning team, who picked up the rubbish on the Monday.

Wouldn’t it be great if the Alley could stay clear all the time…
