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.”
