Hummersea Hills Litter Pick


On Wednesday 31st May there was a Love It litter pick at Hummersea Hills in Loftus with local residents, Borough and Town Councillors and staff from Redcar and Cleveland Council and Coast & Country Housing taking part. There were around 35 bags of litter and debris collected.

Throughout the week, improvements have taken place in this area of Loftus with grass and shrub maintenance carried out by Coast & Country Housing and grass cutting, pitch marking and installation of new goal posts at Ben Scotts Field by Redcar and Cleveland Council. The area around the changing rooms has also been tidied up with plans for a team to re-use them in the future. Redundant lamp columns were removed by Bougues on behalf of Coast & Country Housing.

The combined results are a good example of partnership working and what difference can be achieved when people join together. Thanks go to all volunteers who took part.

If you would like more information on the Love it campaign, please look at the Redcar and Cleveland Council website or contact Community Development Officer Jo Fearey on 01287 284271 for more details in the Loftus area.

Friends of Zetland Park roll up their sleeves

The Friends of Zetland Park have joined forces with volunteers from local McDonalds branches to spruce up Zetland Park.

Picnic tables and benches throughout the park have been repainted, and many bags of rubbish were filled as volunteers tackled the litter.

Planting also took place thanks to funding from Zetland ward councillors Josh Mason and Neil OBrien, as well as donations from McDonalds and Longbeck Nurseries.

This partnership has come together under McDonalds Love Where You Live campaign, as well as the community-led project Love It. These campaigns are about taking pride in where you live and caring for your surroundings in order to create a better environment.

Andrew Pearson, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Councils Community Liaison Officer, organised the purchase of the paint and brushes and McDonald's provided rubbish bags and litter picking tools.

The group also freshened up a mural which was designed by Libby Smart, a pupil at John Emmerson Batty School in 2013.

Mary Lee, Treasurer of Friends of Zetland Parks, said: A huge thank you goes to the McDonald's 'Love where you live' scheme for providing money for the plants, and Longbeck Nurseries, who not only gave us an excellent discount but added extra shrubs for free.

McDonald's staff from four different branches, local residents, Friends of Zetland Park members and one of our Councillors, Josh Mason, spent over 5 hours working hard in the park and were all unpaid.

The park looked noticeably better for all the volunteers efforts and it demonstrates what can be achieved when the council, councillors, community groups and businesses work together.
