Housing association Salix Homes, which owns more than 8,300 homes in central Salford and Swinton, is launching its first ever Love Your Neighbourhood Week to encourage people to take pride in their communities.
The event will run from Monday, August 7 to Friday, August 11 and involves an action-packed week of activities across Salford.
The line-up includes community clean-ups, skips days, garden maintenance workshops and the transformation of an overgrown allotment site in Broughton.
There’s also a family-fun day at Ordsall Café on Thursday, August 10 where people can look forward to a range of stalls, giant games and hanging basket making.
Salix Homes’ Neighbourhood Teams will also be on hand to chat to residents about any issues in their communities.
Sue Sutton, executive director of operations at Salix Homes, said:
“Salix Homes is passionate about building safe, clean and happy communities where our residents can be proud to live and work.
“The people of Salford are famous for their pride in this great city, but the aim of Love Your Neighbourhood Week is to encourage even more people to take a little bit of ownership of where they live because if everyone does their bit we can make a real and lasting benefit to our neighbourhoods.
“We want people to join forces for the benefit of their communities and we are urging as many people as possible to get involved and ‘love their neighbourhood’.”
