Cricklewood clean up conquers the streets
Residents leave their area litter free
Any claims that the streets of Cricklewood are messy and dirty can be rubbished after residents took part in a mass tidy up last week.
Volunteers from the NorthWestTWO residents association refused to allow the rainy weather to wash away their plans and took to the streets in gusto making the area a litter-free zone
After just two hours, the determined group collected 25 bags leaving the pavements sparkling like a new pin.
Carol Reeman, NorthWestTWO chairwoman, said: “We wanted our neighbourhood to sparkle as we have the Brent in Bloom judging happening next week.
