Friends are busy again

THE Friends of Aveley Rec were out and about yesterday (Saturday, 27 April) litter picking, this time at Martin Road Park (Mini Park).

This was the Friends’ fourth litter pick in April in four different parks.

Local organiser Teresa Webster said: “We had a great turn out and ten bags of litter and other items were picked up by the kids.

“We had a very determined little girl who even litter-picked with a broken leg.”

The group has decided to change its name and, going forwards, will be known as Friends of Aveley and Kenningtons Parks.

Teresa added: This is so we can encourage residents and children to get involved with us in their local park.

“We also intend to organise events in the future for the community enjoyment and to encourage community cohesion.”
