A series of deep cleaning activities will begin across Havering as part of the council’s recovery plans following the pandemic.  

Over the coming weeks Havering Council's Autumn Blitz will see two teams starting in the north of the borough and ending in Rainham.  

The teams will focus on street cleaning, weeding, grass cutting, litter picking, enforcement of environmental issues, graffiti removal and jet washing.  

Busy high streets, council estates and parks will see normal service delivery.  

This comes after some council services such as cleaning programmes were affected throughout the pandemic.
