UK: Ahmadiyya Muslims join Croydon’s Broad Green community’s spring clean campaign

Locals set out to clean up Litter Land

Broad Green Residents Association (BGRA) organised the Broad Green community spring clean, which took place on Easter Monday, 17th April.

It was well-attended: amongst the litter pickers were Labour councillors Stuart Collins (who heads up the drive to tackle litter and fly-tipping – and who wasn’t just there for the photos; he stayed and picked litter), Callton Young and Stuart King; several members of Croydon Conservatives including Stuart Millson, whose article is linked above; Robert Ward, who has crunched some data on this subject for the Citizen; a large contingent of Ahmadiyya Muslims, already known for their public-spirited clean-up work, but excelling themselves this time with an offer of lunch for all involved at the St James’s Road mosque when we were finished; and a troop of assorted other Croydonians, some of us local and others from further away. It was encouraging to see such a strong turnout.
