First Step in Beautifying our Alleys – a great team effort!

We spent Saturday cleaning out the last of the Fat Alley’s back alleys – and what a job it was – here are the before and after pictures (by Lee Coulbeck). And some durings.

Thanks so much to the lads from Community Payback, who were just phenomenal. Thanks to Stan at the chippie for donated lunches. Thanks especially to Newlincs for sponsoring us and for Biffa for being so great at supplying a huge skip – which wasn’t quite enough, so we’re going to have to get another for the big stuff we left neatly stacked and ready to go

We’ll be organising greening and artwork sometime soon, so watch this space.

  1. This is a fantastic and creditable example of community pride. Well done to all. If only some of the rental the rental tenants had the same pride. Sadly I got a distressed complaint from a neighbour recently. Apparently the tenants on Stanley Street thought that a camp fire in the front yard was a good idea! Sorry to report this in the face of your excellent efforts. Thank you all the same.

  2. Thanks Jonti – we did get some help from locals and it was really appreciated. We’ll be revisiting ‘Fat Alley’ as soon as we can arrange the greening and artworks, it’d be great if you would get involved and help us plan it all 🙂
