Community works together to clean up Blackbird Leys area

Blackbird Leys Clean-up day

The Blackbird Leys area in Oxford has had a large ‘clean-up and clear-out’ thanks to partner working between Catalyst, Greenspace Group, and, property maintenance contractor DW Support Services.

Sixty residents and their families directly benefited from the two hour event, that happened on 26 August 2016, and left the Kingfisher Green, Jack Argent and Deer Walk areas look tidy and beautiful.

Elderly residents were helped to clear their front gardens, young people were encouraged to take care of their environment by going on litter-picking patrols, and surveyors from the maintenance team were able to spot check some issues mentioned by residents.

Catalyst staff also spoke with participants about the forthcoming new Neighbourhood Strategy for the area.
