Residents Love Where You Live Alley

Residents Love Where You Live – it’s right up our alley!

In an effort to clean up our streets and reduce flytipping in Oldham, residents and community organisations have been finding creative ways to come together as a community and deal with the problem.

To get the word out about the hard work of our residents, ifOldham and their team of volunteers have created a pop-up alleyway at Manchester Chambers in Oldham Town Centre, called the Love Where You Live alley.  There’s an array of planters, hanging baskets, flowers and edible plants to inspire you to spruce up your own neighbourhoods – and plenty of ifOldham experts around to talk to about the Love Where You Live alley.

If you’re not sure how to find Manchester Chambers, start from the Spindles entrance on the High Street and look for the little birds and bugs on the pavement – they’ll show you where you need to go!

 

To find out more about all the fantastic work that is going on across the borough, brightening up alleyways and bringing communities together, check out @ifOldham on Twitter and Facebook.
