More villages and towns benefit from The Big Clean

More villages and towns are benefitting from The Big Clean's mission to raise the street standard in South Kesteven.

The project's dedicated teams have visited over 30 villages and returned to parts of Grantham, Stamford and The Deepings in recent weeks to tackle further litter, weeds, fly-tipping, broken bins and road signs.

A video highlighting the project so far has now been released on SKDC's YouTube Channel , Google SKDC YouTube to view, showcasing how volunteers, as well as the teams, are helping the project cleanse areas.

It brings to life in just three minutes the spirit of the campaign and what has been achieved in communities across the district.

Meanwhile in Grantham, Cllr Ian Stokes saw the teams in action in Manthorpe village last week, Cllr Adam Stokes visited teams tackling weeds and litter on Harrowby Road and Cllr Dr Peter Moseley met teams in action in Rippingale.

Cabinet Member for Environment Cllr Dr Moseley said: "The project continues at a pace and we thank all those who have commented on the impact of the team's work in villages and towns to date.

"It shows our investment to raise the street standard really will create better places for residents to live and work and encourage investment in the district.

"Take a look at the video to see how teams and volunteers are working together to make our streets look great."
