New Volunteer Environmental Action Group formed for Milkstone & Deeplish:

Environmental Action Group members agreed previously

to start helping residents to clean their area so Residents met at Castlemere Community Centre under clear blue skies & sunshine and started the area second Milkstone & Deeplish litter pick this Saturday morning.

The Environmental Management of the Rochdale Council provided litter picks and the plastic bags. This cleaning campaign will be ongoing and will continuously recruit local people to become involved, take ownership and become members of the action group as “Street Champions “.

If you’re local to the area why not pop down lend a hand, or why not set up a local group for your street or neighbourhood?
