We've been cleaning!

Staff went to Disley at the end of November with the sole goal to spruce up Crabtree Court.

It was a brisk autumnal day and we were raring to get going. 

We wanted to litterpick the streets and do some weeding at Crabtree Court. It was nice to see that there was no litter when we got there! This meant we had more hands to focus on the weeding. 

We removed ivy, weeded in shrub beds, scraped and cleared paved areas, and removed moss. 

Our Asset team at the Trust had recently finished painting the outside handrails and step nosings (that's the yellow bit at the edge of the step to stop you from slipping!), so our tidy up was at a good time for Crabtree Court be freshly tidied. 

Councillor Sue Adams joined us with her partner and a member of the local group PRIDE (People Restoring and Improving the Disley Environment). Idverde, our contractors, also came in with a mechanical sweeper to help remove moss and weeds. 

Councillor Adams donated spring flowering bulbs and the Trust agreed to support some extra planting in the area too. 


A big thank you to everyone involved with the clean-up at Crabtree Court. Lots of positive comments from residents and Crabtree Court looks so much better.
