In partnership with Manchester City Council, Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG) were out in force to clean up Mill Brook stream.
The clean-up of the stream was completed by WCHG Staff and our Real Neighbour Volunteers; they all took full advantage of the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and make a real difference to the aesthetics of this area.
The day was a huge success; a 12 yard skip was filled to the brim, and cleaned 650mm of the stream reinstating the stream to be flowing.
Tony Roden Executive Director of Property said “It is remarkable to see the enthusiasm and commitment of volunteers on local projects that make Wythenshawe a clean and attractive place to live, keeping the streams clean and clear from rubbish is not only attractive but helps promote local wildlife.
Jacque Allen Executive Director of Housing said “Wythenshawe Community Housing Group’s Volunteering 4 Wythenshawe Programme enables staff to make a difference in the neighbourhoods they are working with. The staff have been so enthusiastic and passionate about getting involved and working alongside the community and partners. Millbrook stream clean-up is just one of many projects we have been involved in to make a real difference to our communities”
Real neighbour volunteer said “I really enjoyed doing the stream clean-up it made me feel so proud to have helped. It was a great achievement to see the stream running again, I love the rewards of seeing and making the community a better place to be”.
