CSV 'Make a Difference Day' Arrives Early

October 23, 2006 11:19 AM
Clls Clean Up

from Left to Right, Tom Brake MP and residents Jill Whitehead and Alan Salter show they are not scared to get their hands dirty

The banks of the River Wandle look that much cleaner after local residents, Councillors and Tom Brake, Liberal Democrat MP for Carshalton and Wallington, joined forces on Saturday 21st October 2006 in the afternoon for a community litter pick on a stretch of the River Wandle running from the bridge opposite Rochester Road to the Butter Hill bridge.

The litter pick was the first in a number of local events organised to celebrate Community Service Volunteers 'Make a Difference' Day on the 28th October.

The volunteers included local Cllrs John Drage, Bruce Glithero and his daughter, Joan Hartfield, David Theobald and local residents Muhammad Sadiq, Alan Salter, Anne Singleton and Jill Whitehead and Tom Brake MP

A number of large items which could not be removed have been reported to the Council and the Environment Agency, which is responsible for keeping the banks and river clean, has been asked to conduct a clean-up in the parts of the river and the river bank that are not accessible.

    If you are a resident of the Carshalton and Wallington constituency and are writing to discuss any issue that Parliament or government is responsible for, you must provide your home address as MPs are generally only permitted to act on behalf of constituents.

    If you are not a constituent, you do not need to provide your address, but the matters we can deal with are more limited and you may wish to contact your local MP in the first instance.

    • If you agree, Tom Brake MP, the Liberal Democrats, and their elected representatives may use the information you provide to contact you about issues you may find of interest. Some of the contacts may be automated. You can opt out of these contacts at any time by contacting us.
