Working together for a cleaner Cadiz

16 June 2015

Helm Housing were delighted to work with local community representatives in an organised clean-up event at Cadiz Manor on Friday 12 June 2015.  The event was supported by Keep NI Beautiful who provided gloves, litter pickers and bin bags; with Mid & East Antrim Borough Council who also donated bags and litter pickers for the day as well as the provision of a special bin collection.  

Karen Montgomery, Community Coordinator at Helm Housing said â??I love being able to work with the local community on events such as this clean-up at Cadiz Manor.  It is great to see so many volunteers and local residents come out to support us today to help us keep the area looking its best.â?
Helmâ??s role through its Community Coordinators is to support local communities and residents to identify areas where they can work together with key organisations and tenants to create thriving communities.  The clean-up at Cadiz was also supported by representatives from Carrickfergus PUP, Davey Street Committee, Carrickfergus Community Forum and local residents.  
Helm Neighbourhood Manager Sheila Taylor added â??We at Helm are delighted to be able to provide this service to the local Carrickfergus community in partnership with community representatives.  Projects like this strengthen our ties with the community and we are delighted to be involved. It is always rewarding when the people living in the community volunteer to help clean up their own areas and it is encouraging that so many of those taking part would wish to help again in future events in the areas.â?
