Do you think Palmers Green could look more attractive? Would you like to take part in a fun community event to help make it happen?

If so, come along and join in with our Spring Clean Palmers Green event next month! Volunteers will be meeting at 10am on Saturday 11th May at the Triangle, in the centre of Palmers Green, to take part in an event organised by the Palmers Green Action Team.

Palmers Green Action Team is a new, local volunteer group who are looking at ways to improve the area. For this event, they are working with the charity Cleanup UK, the Scouts, Enfield Council, Green Lanes Business Association, as well as other local businesses. Anthony Webb Estate Agents are kindly sponsoring the event.

The action team aims to mobilise the community to pull together, so everybody is welcome to come along, even for a short time. Businesses are taking the opportunity to refresh their shopfronts, the council will be jet-washing the pavements, and volunteers will be removing graffiti stickers, weeding, planting, and litter-picking. Cleaning kits will be supplied and Papa Johns will be rewarding volunteers with free pizza!

There will be an opportunity to get creative too – using the spring theme. The group will be decorating shop windows with flowers, which anyone can come and create. Arts materials will be available. Sodexo, which manages the job centre and Boots, are both looking at what they can do to spruce up their buildings.

Dominvs, the developer of the Fox Pub, has kindly given the Palmers Green Action Team access to the vacant hairdresser shop next-door. The group is running an exhibition, competition, and survey about the high street. Do go in, have a look, and take part, whether or not you are spring cleaning.

The Palmers Green Action Team would love to hear from you if you would like to get involved or just want to find out what they are doing.
