Nearly all the residents of Culling Road in Belvedere and a few households from Lower Road, got together recently to make their street a better place to live. By coming together as a community, they were able to transform their street. Even the children had a great time.
Once the street had been swept and rubbish cleared, residents got down to making the street prettier. Hexagon provided every household with hanging baskets, which residents could make up themselves with beautiful colourful flowers. There were also plant pots for the children to decorate and to plant seeds and flowers. Once that had been done, there was a competition for the best decorated plant pot, with the winner receiving shopping vouchers and once all the hard work was done, residents tucked into some tasty pizza!
The Community Investment Team took the opportunity to promote the projects currently on offer and had a number of residents signing up for them. As an example, one of the residents has now secured a plumbing apprenticeship with one of our contractors, P&R Installations.
It really was a great day and made a big benefit for all those who attended. A big thank you to all who took part, especially the two residents who volunteered to hang all the baskets for other residents.
