A group of residents can take pride in their local surroundings once again after clearing their estate’s car park of overgrown wildlife.

Volunteers joined staff from Havering Council and the Durham and Elvet Avenue Tenant Management Organisation (DELTA TMO) on June 22 to help clear the car park in Elvet Avenue, Gidea Park, of brambles, weeds and self-seeded trees.

Sandy Stevenson, chairwoman of DELTA TMO, said: “We got some residents volunteering to help alongside council and DELTA TMO staff and, after two hours of hard work cutting back the vegetation, we had the car park looking much better, with the plants now well under control.”

Councillor Damian White cabinet member for housing said: “Our most recent figures show that 472 residents have volunteered to take part in such Clean Ups in their area which is yet another example of the pride Havering people take in the place where we all live.

“We have more Clean Ups planned throughout the summer and look forward to more residents joining us for an hour or two to help.”

Havering Council has organised several community clean-ups already this year as part of its Green and Clean campaign, it’s most recent event was held yesterday in Hillrise Road, Collier Row.
