Early on 19th June volunteers from Cullercoats Ambassadors, the Co-op, Cullercoats Coffee and the community gathered to tackle a specific area in Cullercoats. For three hours volunteers tackled some large brick planters that had been overtaken with weeds and the fenced park area to prepare them for the next phase of our Cullercoats Green Spaces Project. Volunteers also litter picked, swept, wiped and brushed the streets and roads around these areas.
The weather was kind to us with the sun shining throughout the time and there was a great community atmosphere. People stopped and chatted and others picked up a brush and joined in. This was just the first phase for the planters and fenced area and more work will be taking place in the weeks and months ahead to smarted up these areas.
