Runcorn locals urged to ‘Love Where you Live’


Published by Roisin Rowley-Smith for Riverside in Communities and also in Environment, Housing

Riverside is backing Keep Britain Tidy in a bid to encourage Runcorn neighbours to ‘Love Where you Live’.

The social landlord is kicking off its campaign with a Big Tidy Up in Palace Fields woods on Friday 14 March.  Pupils from Palace Fields Primary Academy will be joining in the litter pick alongside housing and council staff, as well as local police.

Riverside’s Laura Woodward is communal areas officer for Halton.  She said:  “We are working with our grounds maintenance contractor, Assist, to manage the amount of fly-tipping, littering and dog fouling on the Palace Fields estate.  But we also want people to take responsibility and pride in their own neighbourhoods.  This event is a great way to spread the word, especially with youngsters in the area, who we hope will encourage their families to love where they live.”

If you want to take part in the tidy up, contact Laura at Riverside on tel: 0345 111 0000 or meet at Palace Fields Primary Academy, Rawdon Close at 1.30pm on Friday 14 March.
