Community groups, residents, police and Lancaster City Council pull together to put some pride back into our district

DORRINGTON Road in Lancaster kicked off the first of a new programme of the popular Street Pride scheme.

The road, said to be the longest unbroken terrace in Europe, was a hive of activity as a hit squad of council workers, local volunteers and other agencies moved in.

Services carried out during the day included street cleansing, grounds maintenance, gully emptying and minor street repairs.

Coun David Smith, Cabinet member with responsibility for Community Safety, said: “Street Pride is a great initiative but it is only one piece of the puzzle if we are going to make our district a cleaner and safer place to live.

“The council can do its part by cleaning the streets, but we all know that public service spending cuts will mean that there is less money to go around and therefore fewer resources.

“By all doing our part we can keep our streets clean and make our district a better place to live and work.”

After the Street Pride project has left an area residents are being encouraged to continue the work by organising their own litter picks and community activities.

Advice and litter pick equipment to help residents ‘do their bit’ will be provided by the city council at their request.

Details of how to request equipment, along with more information on Street Pride and how to nominate your area to take part, is available by visiting
