Spring clear out for Shipston on Stour

Residents in Shipston on Stour helped to tidy their homes and community with a Spring Bank Holiday clear out thanks to Warwickshire Rural Housing Association (WRHA).

A Skip Clearance Day was organised on 28th May, just after the bank holiday weekend, enabling local families in Oxway Close to get rid of all their unwanted items as well as clearing the local alleyway of rubbish.

By the end of the day, the huge builders’ skip was full to the brim and the alleyway had been transformed.

Housing & Income Team Leader, Philippa Osborne, said: “The skip day has made a big difference to Oxway Close.  Two local residents were brilliant at helping to move all the rubbish, including bricks, fence panels and old kids’ toys, from the alleyway, and it looks completely different now.  A big thank you goes to all those who helped to improve their community.”
