Call to help with clean up

A CALL has gone out for volunteers to help clean up a new public open space in Grays.

The Grays Big Local Riverside Community Project is creating the ‘pocket park’ in woodland along Bridge Road and will be carrying out a litter pick this Wednesday (14 August).

It is estimated there are 75 sacks of rubbish to be collected from the area, known as Falconwood.

A statement from the project said: “We will be there from 10.30 to 1.30 – it would be great if you could lend a hand, even if for half an hour.”
