Jesmond Street Tidy

Jesmond

Rather than have a street party to celebrate the end of term, we thought we would have a street tidy instead! OK, it may not sound quite as much fun (and let’s be honest - it isn't) but that’s not to say we shouldn’t do it anyway.

Jesmond has a huge student population which seems to take a lot of the blame for the amount of litter in the streets, particularly broken glass. With it being the end of term, we want to collect as much as possible to encourage people to think about the amount they’re drinking. We want to get as many students as possible along to help clear this up.

We will start at 10:30am and stop at 2:00pm but even if you can just help for 30 minutes that would be greatly appreciated. Our efforts will be focused on Manor House Road, Queens Terrace and others in that area.

This project is a great way to finish the term, you will get a bit of fresh air, meet new people and help show some of the older local residents in the area that not all students deserve a bad rap.

All equipment is provided, you just need to bring yourself.

We will meet outside the Union at 10:30am and if you’d like any more information on the Drug and Alcohol Awareness Week, please visit the link here: https://www.nusu.co.uk/news/article/6516/Drug-and-Alcohol-Awareness/
