Residents turn out in force to help spruce up estate
More than 50 sacks of rubbish collected by volunteers in a big clean-up at Ashford’s Repton Park estate.
Helping the residents’ association were Ashford Borough Council who provided the volunteers with sacks, gloves and gardening equipment; members of Ashford Vineyard Church, Waitrose with food sustenance and Repton Manor School, which accommodated helpers for a lunch afterwards.
Sally-Joe Denman, association chairman, said: “We’re proud of where we live and we wanted to show that pride in our environment. We were all so pleased to see so many residents turn out to help and for all the others who supported us, also Cllr Peter Feacey for all his continuing help.”
