Each borough around Crystal Palace offers different support to help you be a local Street Champion, and help support your local area and community. Most councils will support you or local groups with litter pickers, bags, hoops, brooms, gloves etc.  Plus local groups already have shared equipment to help.  Street Champions can…

  • Help create community gardens,
  • Clearing rubbish out of alley ways, litter-picking
  • Help build planters to prevent fly-tipping, greening local streets
  • Help organise community clean-ups and litter picks.
  • Help elderly neighbours tidy their front garden
  • Cutting back overgrown hedges
  • Do snow patrols to grit local paths
