Adopt A Road
Do you want to be more involved in your local area? Have you considered the council's Adopt A Road scheme?
The Adopt a Road scheme is for willing participants to carry out works which are supplementary to the council's work, helping to keep our borough looking clean and green, in and around areas where you live or work. The scheme is open to individuals, groups and businesses who would like to get involved in supporting their neighbourhood and maintaining and improving the local environment.
There are no set rules, you would not be directed by the council and you can choose how involved you want to be. Good examples of tasks include bulb planting, helping neighbours who are unable to keep their gardens tidy to do so and community litter picks. How often, when and where is entirely your choice. All we ask is that participants are mindful of health and safety, update the council of any actions and ask for help if needed. We will need you to sign an agreement form with regard to this.
The council will provide support and guidance where needed and loan the use of some equipment where available. Contact us on 01707 357000 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
