Community Clean-up Culverland Park


Residents, councillors and team members from Cormac came together at the weekend to ‘clean-up Culverland’ Park in Liskeard, and show they care following a recent spate of fly tipping.

Organised by local Councillor Nick Craker, the event saw more than 15 residents and town councillors turn out to litter pick, clear away fly tipping, sweep up leaves and clear overgrown footpaths and blocked drains.

Cllr Nick Craker said: “Residents were telling me they wanted to see Culverland Park looking cleaner and tidier; by involving the residents who live here it is a great way of demonstrating that the community spirit is alive and well in Liskeard.”

Using Cormac’s volunteer tool trailer, and with support from Biffa, the volunteers filled six large dumpy bags of green waste for removal and collected up building debris and two children’s scooters that had been fly tipped.

Rebecca Dickson, Community Partnership Officer at Cormac said: “As Community Partnership Officer for the east of Cornwall, I was delighted to be able to assist Cllr Craker and the residents of Culverland Park in holding this “clean up” event and providing insurance, tools and required permissions to enable them to achieve their objectives.

“It’s great to see a community coming together to make a real difference to their immediate surroundings and expressing interest in organising further action days. Hopefully this is just the start of a fantastic partnership between Cormac and the community at Culverland Park.”

Cormac’s Community Partnership Officers provide support to any group or individual who carries out any voluntary work on land or Cornwall Council owned sites. This can range from a single volunteer looking after a local flower bed or section of verge, right through to the larger “in bloom” type groups”.
