Initiative to clean West Ealing returns for a second year. After a successful 2015 project launch which saw Dean Gardens railings sanded and repainted, derelict garden areas planted, pavements washed, litter picked and a business waste amnesty, InWestEaling will again join forces with local businesses, Ealing Council, agencies such as Amey and First Mile, residents and community groups to make a visible difference to West Ealing town centre.
Volunteers representing local businesses, Ealing Council, residents and community groups will be out in West Ealing washing, painting, recycling, scrubbing, sanding, clearing litter and helping to clean the area. If you’d like to join in, contact the team and help make West Ealing sparkle. This is an opportunity for the business and resident community to come together and make West Ealing town centre brighter for everyone to enjoy ahead of the summer period.
InWestEaling, is a business led, business funded organisation working to; activate the town centre with events and markets; support retailers and offices reduce business costs; offer training and development courses; make the town centres safer to visit, shop, live and work; and support businesses. The Cleaning West Ealing campaign brings together parties to invest in the local area and to focus and care for our vibrant high streets.
Phil Hall (John Rowan & Partners LLP), Chair, InWestEaling commented ‘I am excited to support Cleaning West Ealing for another year. I ask for all local businesses to join forces and help make this year’s campaign another resounding success.’
Over two days, Thursday 2 June and Friday 3 June, teams will be out cleaning West Ealing. Projects for 2016 include drain clearance on Melbourne Avenue; cleaning of lamp columns and fly posting removal; graffiti removal; a free waste amnesty with businesses able to throw unwanted items in skips provided; unlimited recycling and waste electrical and electronic items collected for free for businesses; fly tipping will be removed and pavements will be jet washed along with a host of other cleaning projects.
Ealing Council were a key part of last years campaign and helped fund parts of the programme. Cllr Bassam Mahfouz, the borough’s lead on the environment and a Cleaning West Ealing 2015 volunteer said, “It was a pleasure to be involved in last years Cleaning West Ealing campaign and I am glad to see it will be going ahead again this year. It is important for the entire community to be proud of their local high streets and take a responsibility in keeping our environment clean so everyone can enjoy it. ‘InWestEaling’ are doing great work to ensure businesses play their part in making the town centre a vibrant and clean place for all to enjoy. I encourage as many people as possible to get stuck in over the two days and to transform West Ealing’s High Street – it’s enjoyable and rewarding!”
Keith Townsend, Executive Director Environment and Customer Services said, “Ealing Council were happy to work with InWestEaling during last year’s campaign and are excited to again be a part of the project in 2016. It is important that the entire community invests in our town centres to make sure that they are clean, welcoming and enjoyable for all. It is great to see projects like this, which encourage people to show they care about their local high streets, go ahead. We’ll be Cleaning West Ealing on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 June 2016 will you?”
