People living in Tintagel Close in Keynsham got together to show their appreciation for their neighbourhood by taking part in a community clear-up.
Local residents organised the litter pick with Curo colleagues. Staff from the nearby Co-Operative Food store on Queens Road also helped with the clear-up and provided refreshments and hot cross buns for the litter pickers.
Curo who manage homes on Tintagel Close also recently helped people there to set up a new residents’ association.
Sharon Tucker, chair of the Tintagel Close residents’ association said, “The community clear-up was a great opportunity for people to get together and have some fun, meet their neighbours and help spruce up the courtyard area.”
Colleen Stothard, secretary of the residents’ association, added, “It was nice to see so many people from Tintagel Close of all ages come out and join us, especially the kids who had a great time. We’d like to thank Curo and the Co-Op for helping us out too.”
Colleen added, “Tintagel Close is a great place, I really like living here. The residents’ association is bringing people together. We’ve got lots planned for the summer including a movie night, a barbeque and activities for kids.”
Over twenty bags of rubbish were collected by the litter pickers. Helen Crew, Service Support Manager at Curo, said “It was a really enjoyable day. It was great to see Curo and customers working together to achieve such an excellent result.”
