‘Brighter Beverley’ group revived and seeking volunteers

A plea for volunteers has gone out this week after the Town Council announced the revival of the Brighter Beverley group. It follows efforts to spruce up the town before the recent visit by judges in the Britain in Bloom contest. Deputy Mayor Councillor Duncan Jack told us: “We are looking for volunteers to help take on tasks like litter picking, gardening and general tidying up of our streets.’’

He continued: ‘’We are also looking for suggestions of areas and projects that should be looked at.  We do not want tasks to be onerous or too time consuming and want to encourage people to give up their time and skills to the degree they want to.’’ 

The initiative was being launched this week with a litter-pick in the Norwood and Mill Lane area and another clean-up is planned in Hengate Memorial Gardens on Wednesday November 7th at 10am. 

Councillor Jack said: “Just turn up on the day, if you cannot make it and wish to register your interests and be kept informed of any future projects or have suggestions please email or telephone 01482 874096 and leave a message.” The Town Council is also looking at forming a Friends of Coronation Gardens, Hengate Gardens and Lord Roberts Road Gardens and more details will be released shortly.
