A mix of community spirit and elbow grease helped deliver a spring cleaning operation around parts of Stapleford on Thursday, April 20.

Broxtowe Borough Council officers, residents, and contractors Vinshire Heating & Plumbing Ltd and Novus Solutions got to work clearing communal areas and walkways at Matthews Court, Meredith Court, Byron Court, Sheridan Courts and Aaron Close.

Novus spokesman Andrew Besford said: “We love getting involved in these types of community events.

“As a local employer we pride ourselves on respecting the neighbourhoods in which we work and take great pleasure in assisting to create a cleaner country, free from litter.”

There was a good turnout of both younger and older residents, who helped to fill a skip with bulky domestic items such as unwanted furniture and garden waste.

This year marks the fourth year of the council’s popular Community Clean events which help improve the local area and generate a strong sense of civic pride throughout the borough.

Further events are planned for later in the year. For details, call 0115 9177777.
