Northfield town centre’s latest ‘All Out Day’ has been hailed a success by organisers, Liz Newton, Manager of Northfield Business Improvement District (BID), and PCSO Mel Foxall from Northfield Neighbourhood Police Team.
The event was held on Monday 11th March, and many agencies came out in force to help clean town centre hotspots and offer advice to the public and businesses.
One of the main issues tackled was a large amount of fly tipping behind Boots and neighbouring shops. Thanks to great team work, Environmental Health Officers searched the rubbish and found two addresses on paperwork, which they will now follow up, and Birmingham City Council’s Neighbourhood Workers then cleared the rubbish.
Throughout the day, various agencies focussed on the town centre:
* Environmental Health investigating fly tipping and doing business visits
* Birmingham City Council’s Neighbourhood Workers clearing fly tipping
* Dog Wardens giving advice
* National Express giving passenger information
* Amey repairing pavements
* Fire Brigade giving smoke alarm advice
* Northfield Neighbourhood Police Team answering questions
* Northfield BID leading The Big Tidy Up, and liaising with National Grid and Severn Trent about road works
Liz Newton from Northfield BID said: “We were delighted by how many people braved the cold – and snow – to come out and support us! The highlight of the day was working together to get a fantastic result in clearing the fly tipping and also gathering valuable evidence to help track down the offenders.”
