Debbie Steele, who led the Ingol clean up, said: “The Great British Spring Clean has offered a fantastic opportunity for colleagues and customers to work together on this team activity to improve the local area. We’ve had positive feedback and we will be looking for opportunities to plan similar events in the future.”Head of neighbourhoods at Places for People, Mark Viggars said: “This is part of our commitment of managing and providing places where people want to live and echoes our ethos of building communities that thrive. We’ve supported housing schemes in 11 areas across the UK, arranging litter picks, cleanups and other environmental improvements. It’s been a great success and I want to say thank you to everyone involved.”
