Help build community pride and teamwork on Saturday, May 2 during the Community Spring Clean Up throughout the Town of Essex.
“Spring is the perfect time to renew our commitment to a clean and tidy community,” says Doug Sweet, Director of Community Services. “We hope that people will join us at one of four key locations at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 2 to pick up complimentary gloves, bags and maps. This will be an organized cleanup, followed by food and refreshments at each location to thank participants for their teamwork.”
All four urban centres are participating in this event, rain or shine. The key locations are:
Train Station and Heritage Gardens
Harrow and Colchester South Community Centre
McGregor Community Centre
“Taking pride in our residential properties and downtown commercial districts is an important step towards strengthening our community,” says Sweet.
“The Community Spring Clean Up is an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, meet other members of our community, and help to tidy it up for the good weather ahead,” he says.
“It’s also an opportunity to prepare for this year’s visit by national Communities in Bloom (CIB) judges who will look for signs of beautification as well as community involvement and town pride.”
