Last week I attended the national Love Parks conference in Nottingham, so loyal wife Chrissie, and PCEG member Cristina Craft, did a day each on my behalf. This is what Cristina said:
"We had a very productive day. We worked on the at the lower part of the Rockmount estate
It was seriously filthy. There are hundreds of soiled baby nappies disposed on that slope. By the look of the material deterioration, I assume that the area hasn't been cleaned for 5-10 years. Plant roots are growing through the nappies. We collected around a hundred of them but there are many more.
I assume that residents from the flats just drop them from their windows.
We collected around 20 bags plus bikes, mattresses, etc.
I am convinced that working with this team we can change the face of Plumstead in terms of cleanliness. I'm very excited about it."
I hope that might be an encouragent for some more members to step into the gaps when I have to do some paid work . . .
