Today, I visited tenement closes in the Willowbank Crescent area, today. I was very impressed to find a well maintained street, community garden and back lane. This is possible due to the dedication of residents, regular clean ups in the area and ongoing support from Cleaning Staff.
Willowbank Street Community Garden
Willowbank Crescent Lane
A large number of bins have been provided for recycling of food waste, newspapers, cardboard and glass in the back lane. The general refuse is collected in large industrial bins. This has reduced the problems with littering and transformed the backcourts. The community garden is supported by Woodlands Community Development Trust. This can be an inspiration to other people experiencing difficulties with littering in their backcourt.
