We’re all proud of where we live and enjoy living in nice areas, but when our local community becomes unkempt and untidy it can be a little saddening. Why not band together with your neighbours to brighten up your streets again? A great community event could involve a good clean-up, and if you hire a wide range of skips, it’ll make the job so much easier!
Here are a few more tips to make it a bit more fun:
Find a project
First of all, you’ll need to figure out what needs doing, maybe you only need to do a litter pick or perhaps there is some graffiti that needs to be removed. You could also consider flower planting, beach or river clean-ups and other beautification projects.
You may need people to donate items or you may need donations to fund the items you need. Make a list of what you require and if you don’t already have funding, start asking for donations or ask local people to donate.
Some things you might need are:
- Bin bags
- Litter pickers
- Flowers and plants
Create a Facebook event
Get the word out on social media and get everyone to invite their friends, the more the merrier! You’ll want lots of people to help with the set up so it’s also a good way to scout out willing volunteers. Include the date, meeting location and a schedule of events. Get everyone who wants to come signup online so that they can check in to the event on the day and you know how many people will be turning up.
Make a plan
When you have acquired everything you need and the event is ready to go ahead, create a detailed plan for the day. Post this on Facebook so that everyone knows what will be happening and make sure you contact relevant people to check that all plans are in place such as the skip hire and volunteers.
When the day comes around, assign your volunteers to specific jobs. Maybe you need people to signpost certain areas, to hand out refreshments or to check-in volunteers. Once everyone knows what they’re doing, the event will run much smoother.
Finally, make sure you enjoy the clean-up and appreciate your community coming together to make this happen!
