Cleaning our community

01 Oct 2019

Cleaning our community Image

A “Spring Clean” of Docklands on Saturday, September 21 represented much more for our community than just a tidy-up of the local area.

The two-hour clean of Docklands as part of World Clean Up Day saw the launch of the new Love Our Streets Docklands (LOS3008) group, supported by the Docklands Representative Group (DRG).

Around 50 people attended on the day, bringing a number of different Docklanders together in what was not only a reflection of the growth of Docklands, but an encouraging sign for the evolution of a larger group/network for our local community.

pearheaded by DRG member Janette Corcoran, the event saw the likes of Docklands Rotary, the Country Womens’ Association (CWA) Docklands, YMCA, Neighbourhood House and the City of Melbourne attend.

While a disturbing amount of litter and cigarette butts were collected, it was the collaboration between residents and local groups that would have excited many locals.

As the DRG prepares to recruit new members from 2020 and progress discussions about how a new residents’ group might take shape, it was encouraging to see such an appetite among so many for community engagement and activities.

For more details about the clean and LOS3008’s future activities read Janette Corcoran’s article on page 21. To find out more about the DRG and how you can get involved email the group’s chair Jason Ting: (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)
