The Churton Park Community Association is combining with Wellington City Council to hold a clean-up day on Saturday 2 April 2016 from 11am commencing at the Community Centre.

The cleanup will be followed by a barbecue for the hungry collectors

The Association says this is part of their aim to enhance the attractiveness of the suburb through maintaining tidiness and the beautification of streets.

Unfortunately recycling bins will blow over on windy days and the contents then spread far and wide. The Association says that whilst most residents pick up the odd piece of rubbish that may end up around their properties this is not always so and particularly in public areas and reserves. It has also been surprised at what some people have dumped as well – some quite large bits of inorganic material and some quite obnoxious rubbish.

Bearing in mind the successful clean-up day run in Johnsonville, the Association felt that their area would benefit from a similar exercise. The idea was picked up enthusiastically by the Council who again will be providing bags, gloves and arranging disposal of the rubbish picked up.

All residents are encouraged to be part of this exercise which has the added backing of the Johnsonville Lions, local Church and local schools.
