Your invite to join our litter picking and weeding extravanganza!

Our staff are giving some of our estates the 'get involved' treatment - this means they're volunteering to tidy up, clean up and spruce up some of our neighbourhoods. We'd love you to join in too, when you see us.
This is what the Trust is all about: working together to create great places to live and neighbourhoods that we can all be proud of.

It's great to see staff, customers and local residents, all helping out to do the little but important jobs that often get overlooked - like weeding and litterpicking.


Rachel Marsland, Customer Voice Manager


Staff volunteer their time to keep our neighbourhoods tidy. They post for a photo after a hard day weeding!

Here's a handful of photos from our clear up days last year. Take a look - you might even recognise a face.

Join in this spring and summer

In 2023, we've already visited the Weston. In February, our staff and local residents volunteered their skills to tidy up Bank Street and the surrounding areas in Macclesfield. 

We also have some more dates planned this spring and summer:

  • Friday 31 March - Weston estate, Macclesfield
  • Wednesday 24 May - Lacey Green, Wilmslow
  • Thursday 6 July - Manor Park Estate, Knutsford
  • Thursday 7 September - Upton Priory, Macclesfield 
  • Wednesday 18 October - Bollington 
  • Tuesday 28 November - Disley
  • Tuesday 15 February 2024 - Poynton

We'll be doing the same thing everywhere that we go: 

  • Clearing ginnels/alleys/walkways
  • Litter picking
  • Cutting back shrubs/small hedges (if birds aren't nesting)
  • Clearing weeds
  • Finding out where you think we should look at for future work
  • Geting your feedback on the area you live

Want to join us? Email so we know how many people will be coming. If you have some, bring a pair of protective gloves along too.

Get involved with the Trust in other ways

Cant join us on one of our clear up days? No problem. There are lots of ways that you can make a difference to your neighbourhoods by shaping services at the Trust.

Whether you can spend an hour every few months or a couple of hours a week helping us improve, we have an opportunity for you.
