A group of local businesses in Beverley have rolled up their sleeves and got the paint out to tidy up their part of the town.
Speaking to HU17.net, Neil Harris, owner of Bug Vinyl explained more, he said;
“When the town was being prepared for Britain in Bloom Judges the council went around touching up things and painting bollards.”
“Somehow were missed out. We contact the Street Scene at ERYC who were happy to help. They dropped off a couple of brushes and some green paint.”
Neil and other traders then set about getting their little corner of Beverley looking better.
“We are just doing what the Mayor of Beverley asked businesses to do, take some pride in the town. It was not a difficult job and we all had some fun doing it.”
“With paint and brushes provided, we were able to do all the bollards and also the lamppost. It has made a big improvement.”
Beverley Town Council Look To Maintain Momentum
Neil also managed to find a good use for the paint they had left over. He said;
“I read a report in HU17.net where the deputy Mayor, Cllr Duncan Jack was asking for people help clean up Beverley.”
“So we go in touch and donated all the paint and brushes to him and his project.”
Cllr Jack is pushing an incentive in the town called Brighter Beverley. The town council are looking to maintain the momentum gained from Beverley’s participation in Britain in Bloom.
The first of project will take place at 10 AM on Tuesday 16 October. People interested can meet outside Roberts & Speight and help.
Beverley Town Council will provide all the materials and equipment needed and hope that just two hours of work will have a massive impact.
