Supporting clean up day in Greenwich & Blackheath

Greenwich Conservatives joined volunteers from across both Greenwich and Lewisham in a community clean up of Blackheath and the Point in Greenwich. Among the volunteers were Conservative councillors Geoff Brighty and Matt Hartley as well as the Conservative candidate in the forthcoming Greenwich West by-election Thomas Turrell.

Matt, Geoff and Thomas cleaned the Greenwich side of the heath as well as the point at the top of Point Hill in Greenwich. Community clean ups of the Heath and Point are organised twice a year with both a spring and autumn clean taking place.

Geoff Brighty, who regularly attends these clean up days, said "It was good to be able to join in with so many local residents and to take part in keeping our wonderful Heath as clear of litter as possible."

Matt Hartley, who as well as being a Greenwich councillor is also Conservative Parliamentary Candidate for Greenwich & Woolwich, said: "It was great to see an even bigger turnout than last time, with dozens of residents rolling their sleeves up and getting involved. We are so lucky to have the Heath on our doorstep and our efforts seemed to make a big difference."
