Are you a 'Street Champion'?
8th March

Last week, Veolia's team were busy driving gritters or shoveling salt during the snow and ensuring that the roads and pathways were safe. Now that the snow is gone, they've resumed their usual duties so a bit later than planned we're turning our attention to this year's Great British Spring Clean. To mark the event Veolia is inviting local residents to become 'Street Champions' for Southend.

If you live in Southend-on-Sea and have pride in your street and the community in which you live why not get involved? Become the champion that your street deserves!

As a Street Champion you will receive a kit with all the equipment that you need to safely clear the litter that bugs us all.

As Southend-on-Sea Borough Council's partner for street cleansing, Veolia is delighted to launch Street Champions: an initiative that responds to local residents' requests to care for their neighbourhood by volunteering. Many local residents regularly give up their time to collect litter from their streets as part of organised 'litter picks' and Veolia actively supports those activities, which do not affect the regular street cleansing programme, by providing equipment and support.

Street Champions is taking that one step further, offering a flexible way of volunteering your time to pick up litter. As a Champion you can choose how often you head out, it could be 15 mins when walking the dog, a Saturday morning once a month or perhaps involving the children on the school run? Volunteers signing up to the Street Champions campaign will receive a kit which includes a litter picker, a high-viz vest for safety, gloves and rubbish sacks. You will be able to record the impact you have on your street and help others take pride in where you live.

So celebrate the Great British Spring Clean by taking the opportunity to champion tidiness in your local community and become a 'Street Champion' or join us at an organised litter pick.To receive your kits or to know more about the Street Champions, contact Annikka Prashad on 0203 567 6955.
