Working together in Fir Vale

Story by Usman Yousaf

On Saturday 13th October Fir Vale Community Hub held a community litter pick. The plan was to tackle the residential streets behind Fir Vale Community Hub.

Local community were also joined by the Sheffield Roma Network and council Community Development Workers and uniformed Street Wardens. Local children witnessed what was going on, joined in picking litter, enjoyed the children’s activities and watched a community safety video translated into area relevant languages.

Fir Vale Community Hub had also built an alliance with Rotherham Friends Indeed who support litter picking events and were actively going about the streets strategically taking certain areas to pick up the litter. It’s working together that we can create positive change.
