Our photo shows the launch of the campaign with Larkfleet Homes joint managing director Helen Hick.
Larkfleet Homes is backing the Corby Clean and Proud campaign – a new initiative being led by the Great Oakley Group and the de Capell Brooke family.
Larkfleet Homes and sister company Allison Homes have worked closely with the Great Oakley Group and Alexander de Capell Brooke on the delivery of Oakley Rise, part of the larger Oakley Vale development in Corby.
Joint managing director of Larkfleet Homes, Helen Hick, was on hand to help launch the campaign. She said: “There is little point in creating places like Oakley Rise, with a great sense of community in a very appealing area, unless you keep the place tidy – which is why we were happy to join the Corby Clean and Proud campaign.”
Alexander de Capell Brooke of Great Oakley Estates said: “Waste and litter is something that concerns residents and visitors in towns and cities across the country and Corby is no different. It’s not just the fact that it tarnishes our lovely communities and town centres – but it costs the taxpayer a considerable amount of money.
“With Corby Clean and Proud we want to encourage businesses, as a key part of the local community, to take our pledge and do their bit to reduce waste in their own office or retail environment to support the wider regeneration work in the area.”
Other founding partners include Mid-West Landscaping, Brooke Weston Trust and The David Laing Foundation.
The Corby Clean and Proud campaign is urging Corby businesses to pledge to keep the town’s streets clean and tidy.
Businesses are encouraged to take the CLEAN pledge in the lead up The Great British Spring Clean week at the end of February. CLEAN calls for businesses to;
- • Commit to reducing the litter local to the Corby community
- • Learn more about the impact of litter in our communities
- • Engage with fellow businesses for a collective effort to keep our area clean
- • Act as an ambassador in promoting waste reduction
- • Notify the council if you spot any excessive littering
Corby Borough Council will be holding events to mark the week and businesses can take part in these or set up their own as part of their pledge.
The campaign ties in with the regeneration in the Borough over recent years that recently saw Corby named as the winner of the Academy of Urbanism Great Town 2018 Award.
Each business to sign up will receive a campaign certificate and window sticker and be featured on the campaign website.
