The latest addition to the district council’s bid to clean up the area has been hitting the streets of South Holland.

A new street sweeping machine has joined South Holland District Council’s ranks as part of the Pride in South Holland campaign.

The sweeper has been hired for 17 weeks and along with the two permanent vehicles will make sure that as many small towns and villages are cleaned as possible.

In the last couple of weeks the sweeping team has hit the streets of Deeping St Nicholas and Crowland.

The team also headed along the A16, sweeping up roundabouts and traffic islands.

Coun Roger Gambba-Jones aid: “The new street sweeper will ensure that our team has the resources they need to reach as many areas of our district as possible.

“We are determined to deal with all those areas that are blighting our communities and we look forward to making further progress with this in the New Year.”

The Pride in South Holland campaign was launched recently to boost eyesore sites in the district and has already made great strides.

The former Bull and Monkie pub in Spalding has been cleaned up and other sites, including the Red Cow at Donington, are now being targeted.

Over the coming weeks the Pride in South Holland campaign will see local areas spruced up with a range of actions to ensure the district stays clean.

The campaign will also include:

n Additional cleaning of town centres;

n Community payback service carrying out improvement tasks

n Re-painting of equipment at play areas;

n New signage and CCTV installed where necessary.
