Wembley residents have teamed up with an environmental charity in a bid to tackle the problem of litter and fly tipping in their area.
Thames21, a London waterway charity, in partnership with Chalkhill Community Trust Fund, has launched a new scheme which aims to make the Chalkhill area cleaner and to reduce fly tipping.
The charity will be working with the community in a bid to crackdown on dumping and to clean up fly-tip hotspots.
Cllr Michael Pavey, Barnhill councillor and member of the Chalkhill Community Trust Fund, said “We are very excited about this new project.
“The River Brent should be a gem in Chalkhill but it has been neglected for far too long. We look forward to the whole community coming together to restore its beauty.”
Vicky D’souza, Brent Waterways Officer from Thames21, said: “I am very excited about this new project and am grateful for the generous support from Chalkhill Community Trust Fund which enables Thames21 and the local community to make a positive difference in the area and tackle the huge problem with litter and fly tipping.
“I cannot wait to work with the community to make Chalkhill a cleaner and better place for everyone.”
