Community group clean up in Dukinfield

Dukinfield residents come together to create a greener and safer environment in their local area.

Two years ago, a community engagement group launched on Richmond Park estate, inviting residents to have a hand in improving where they live.  

In the past, the group has picked litter around the estate, held meetings to discuss crime prevention and organised VE Day celebrations.  

More recently they have planted flowers to bring much-needed greenery into the area. There were sixteen planters mounted on the fence along the access point into most of the resident’s properties.  

With over 200 members, the estate also has one of the largest Neighbourhood Watch schemes in Dukinfield.  

Councillor for Dukinfield Nalia Sharif added: “The scheme is going very successfully and if there’s anyone who’d like to do something similar in their area of Dukinfield, they can get in touch with myself, Cllr John Taylor or Cllr Jackie Lane. 

“Thank you to the committee members who fund these events themselves and have given their passion and time to the group, alongside Action Together who also fund our activities and make all we do possible.”
