Take Pride and make a difference in Elm

Elm residents are being given the chance to make a difference to their community by helping to launch the district's latest Street Pride group.

Following the success of a community litter-pick to galvanise support for the idea last month, a meeting to formally set up the new group and welcome members is being held on Wednesday, June 28.

The meeting will be held at the Elm Parish Council office in Begdale Road at 7pm, and anyone with an interest in taking part and becoming a volunteer is welcome to come along.

Councillor Peter Murphy, Fenland District Council's Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: "The litter pick held in May was a great success, with lots of people turning out and showing an interest in setting up a new Street Pride group.

"Our Street Pride volunteers have made such a massive difference to their local communities by creating and renovating gardens, painting pavillions, planting flowers and trees and much more. They also carry out regular litter picks to keep our towns and villages clean and tidy so everyone can enjoy them."

"Now Elm residents have got a chance to make a difference too, and I hope as many people as possible will come along to the meeting to get involved."

The district's other Street Pride groups are in Wisbech, March, Chatteris, Benwick, Gorefield, Leverington, Manea, Newton-in-the-Isle, Parson Drove, Tydd St Giles, Waterlees (Wisbech) and Whittlesey.
