STREET SCENE INITIATIVE UNDER WAY IN WHINFIELD

Because of cuts in finances forced on local authorities, and a desire to try to maintain services wherever possible, Darlington Borough Council is promoting a scheme to encourage residents to be involved in helping to keep our streets, paths and open areas clean and tidy and free from litter. The Street Scene Initiative has already been launched in Whinfield and a number of local people are now giving a little of their time and effort to volunteer to periodically pick up litter in 8 areas of the Ward. All of the equipment required and relevant information is supplied, including a system for having the bags of litter removed afterwards.


If you are interesting in joining this band of volunteers to carry out such work for the benefit of the community where you live, please contact our 2 ward councillors with your details:


Cllr. Helen Crumbie   tel: 462642      helen.crumbie@darlington.gov.uk


      Cllr. Tom Nutt   tel: 360953      thomas.nutt@darlington.gov.uk

Following ongoing problems with anti-social driving in Whinfield, it is planned to hold several SPEED WATCH events over the coming months. Residents who wish to take part in these must contact one of our two Ward Councillors to register interest:


Cllr. Helen Crumbie   tel: 462642

IMPROVEMENTS IN SPRINGFIELD PARK AT LAST

December 2017


After months of pressure from WRA members some welcome improvements are being made to the facilities in Springfield Park.


The missing goalposts have been replaced and the football pitch has been marked out. A WRA spokesperson, who has pushed for repairs to be carried out in the Park, said: "All it needs now is for the teams to put the pitch to good use by returning to play here as they used to do before."


They went on to explain that Darlington Borough Council is carrying out other necessary works, too: "DBC is arranging for the fence around the play area to be looked at and the 'no dogs' sign to be replaced. They have also organised the re-laying of the surface of the play area because it was becoming a trip hazard as it peeled away. This is all great news for residents who wish to use these very important facilities."
