Thurnscoe Community Pride

9th October 2018by Barnsley Council

Thurnscoe Community Pride is a local group of volunteers with a plan to make a difference in Thurnscoe East. We all share a great passion for bringing back pride and for loving where we live. Since our committee was founded in April, we have worked hard to bring awareness to the community about our environment.

We have been working with our local school The Hill Primary Academy to help teach the younger generation about littering. The school management team have been very supportive of our involvement, and we plan to work further with them this year. We have worked closely with other organisations such as TWIGGS Dearne clean and tidy team, the Dearne Area Team, Thurnscoe Tenants Association, South Yorkshire Probation Services as well as joint work with Wath West Melton and Brampton Litter Picking team.

We took part in the Mayor’s Parade with hundreds of other local volunteers to show our passion for giving back to our town and making it a better place to live promoting the ‘Love Where You Live’. We have received some very generous sponsorship from PH Heating Wath, who supplied us with High-vis jackets, Balmoral Tanks who supplied us with valuable picking equipment and donations of water and food from A.S. Plumbing and Heating Thurnscoe and The One Stop Thurnscoe. We have also been lucky enough to secure a grant of £750 from the one-stop carrier bags for causes scheme to help us buy invaluable equipment for our group.

Our current project at the Hanover Street Snicket has been a long and challenging job. We are finally seeing great results after such a lot of hard work and are looking forward to continuing to improve the area further. If you would like to get involved, please contact us, or find us on Facebook and Twitter.
