Eastlight holds community clean-up in Clacton

Residents in St Osyth joined forces with Eastlight Community Homes staff to tidy up their community.

Residents of Meadow View and the surrounding area battled the rain and wind to clear out rubbish and unwanted household items during the clean-up day last Thursday, 9 March.

Eastlight staff were also on hand to complete repairs and consult residents on ideas to prevent parking on an overcrowded grass verge.

In total, three truckloads of rubbish, vegetation and unwanted items were removed within three hours, with the help of Think Business Support Ltd.

Charlotte Burt, Eastlight Tenancy Manager, said: “Residents have told us the area should be tidier, so we teamed up to freshen it up.

“Thank you so much to everyone who turned out, despite the heavy rain!”

Brian Wray, who lives on the estate, said: “Thank you so much for getting my rubbish cleared. It was such a great help to me and saved me at least four trips to the dump and back.

“Your estate tidy has been a huge success. Thank you and your team for a job very well done.”
