Three skips full in Hillfields clean up

Coventry Editorial 28th Aug, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

ENOUGH rubbish to fill three skips was cleaned up and removed from Hillfields by local residents and councillors.

Dirty alleyways were the focus of the clean up – arranged by three councillors – to help bring them back into use for residents.

On Saturday the group visited to Blythe Road, Aylesford Street, Adderley Street and Harnall Lane East.

People involved in a community payback scheme also played their part in the clean up. It is the second time such an event has been organised.

Coun Jim O’Boyle, one of the three St Michael’s ward councillors involved, said: “Once again we have responded to local people’s requests to help them clear up the area.

“The issue with the alleyways is historic and has never been properly tackled due to ownership problems.

“I have been in touch with council officers who are in the process of signing a service level agreement with community payback to do more of this sort of work.

“I will make sure most of this work is carried out where it is needed most – in Hillfields.”
