Taking Care Of Our Local area

June 12, 2023

You may have noticed some parts of the local area looking a bit cleaner and brighter.

Over the past few weeks, along with partners of the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration programme, we have taken up tasks to improve the local area, from gardening projects to litter picking and painting.

Litter picking

Last month, the Mace Team at Brent Cross West organised a litter picking session around the area. Barnet Council’s street cleaning team provided litter picking materials and equipment, whilst Mace, who are project managing the new train station construction programme, gathered a few volunteers who took to the streets for the clean-up session.

Brent Terrace garden project

Over on Brent Terrace, we were approached by the local resident association to help them with their community garden project.  Our Brent Cross Town partner, Related Argent, put their estates management teams to work digging over the flat area of the allotments and levelling the ground. The teams also moved bags of bark chips and piles of green waste, installed a guttering system on the shed and helped with a general clear up of the area while our regeneration team helped coordinate the project.

The Brent Terrace garden project also previously received funding from the Brent Cross Town community fund which is now open for this year’s applications. Find out more details on how to apply here. Applications close Monday 19 June.

Cleaning graffiti off Marble Drive

Last week, the Barnet Council street cleansing team also cleaned graffiti and painted over the garages on Marble Drive – opposite Whitefield School fencing which was also recently painted by pupils and volunteers from Related Argent and Barnet Council.

It is our commitment to help transform the area and support the local community across the Brent Cross Cricklewood regeneration area.
