The Town of Essex is getting clean with a Community Spring Clean Up day planned for the town.

“Spring is the perfect time to renew our commitment to a clean and tidy community,” says Doug Sweet, Director of Community Services. “We hope that people will join us at one of four key locations at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 2 to pick up complimentary gloves, bags and maps. This will be an organized cleanup, followed by food and refreshments at each location to thank participants for their teamwork.”

The clean up will take place on Saturday May 2nd, in all four urban centres rain or shine.

The locations are Jackson Park in Colchester Centre, the Train Station and Heritage Gardens in Essex Centre, The Harrow and Colchester South Community Centre in Harrow Centre and the McGregor Community Centre.

“Taking pride in our residential properties and downtown commercial districts is an important step towards strengthening our community,” says Sweet.

The Community Spring Clean Up is an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, meet other members of the community, and help to tidy it up for the good weather ahead.

“It’s also an opportunity to prepare for this year’s visit by national Communities in Bloom (CIB) judges,” says Paul Tonon, Essex CIB Chair. “They will be looking for signs of beautification as well as community involvement and town pride.”

The day runs from 8:30am to 11:30am.
