Residents invited to take part in community action day

Residents are being invited to take part in a community action day to help spruce up their neighbourhood – and enjoy some Easter treats.

The event, which is taking place on Tuesday, April 4 (10am – 2pm), will focus on the Berries Avenue area of Bude and has been organised following feedback from local residents.

Carol Mould, portfolio holder for Neighbourhoods at Cornwall Council, said: “This is a great opportunity for local residents to come together, help plant bulbs and give the area a bit of spring clean.

“The event is being held during the school Easter holidays and we hope that families will come along and get involved. We welcome volunteers of all ages.

“It’s a great opportunity to meet new people and learn new skills. They’ll also be some Easter eggs and treats available for the volunteers.”

Representatives from Bude Stratton Town Council, the Council’s Adult Social Care team, the Council’s rubbish and recycling team and Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service will also be on hand to meet with residents in the large park on Berries Avenue throughout the day.

Cllr Peter La Broy, local member for the area, said: “This is a chance for you to come and have your say and speak to representatives from a range of services and organisations who will be there to listen to you.

“I’ll be attending on the day and look forward to seeing you there.”

If you have any questions or queries about the event, email Bude@cornwall.gov.uk.

Teams from Cormac, Cornwall Housing and BIFFA will be on hand to support the spring clean. If you would like to volunteer during the event, please email volunteers@cormacltd.co.uk.
