East Hull-based charity EMS is calling on residents to join in a community tidy-up and help spring-clean their part of the city’s Preston Road Estate.

The company, which is responsible for neighbourhood management in the Southcoates Ward area, has organised the Kilnsea Grove Tidy-Up, the first of a series of sessions to clean up untidy areas in the Ward during 2010. The community-led blitz, being organised in association with Gateway, the housing renewal pathfinder for Hull, is scheduled for Thursday 8 April, 2010, from 10am.

EMS Chief Executive Jan Boyd explains: “We’re asking families in the Kilnsea Grove area to do something really worthwhile during the Easter holidays and take part in the Big Tidy-Up. We’ll provide the equipment needed but we just need plenty of people to make the job easier. We will be doing more of these elsewhere in the Southcoates East Ward during the school holidays this year.”

Sandra Waltham, Programme Manager for Gateway, said: “This is a great opportunity for the local community to come together and clean up their street. Schemes like this have been really successful across the city I would urge everyone to get involved.”
