Community clean-up to brighten Ropewalks district

Ropewalks residents and businesses will be brightening up the area tomorrow (25 June) when a community clean-up gets underway.

Volunteers well be heading out onto Bold Street, Berry Street, Fleet Street, Seel Street and Wood Street to help pick up litter and clean the district.

Ropewalks Residents’ Association and local businesses have joined forces to organise the event, with support from Liverpool City Council.

The local authority will supply equipment, protective clothing and advice for participants on the day.

Ahead of the event Peter Schriewersmann, chair of the Ropewalks Residents’ Association, says: “The Ropewalks has become a distinct place with a unique culture and vibe and a fantastic network made up of active residents, businesses and council officers.

“Together, we want to send a signal and also tackle the litter and recycling issues in this amazing part of the Liverpool city centre.”

Ryan Cullen of property firm Iliad says: “We have been actively involved in the historic Ropewalks since the mid 1990s and are proud to have played a significant role in its phenomenal resurgence.

“With the ever-increasing footfall and numbers of residents now living in this eclectic district it’s fantastic to see passionate, empowered members of our community collaborating with local businesses such as ourselves in ensuring the Ropewalks’ famous streets are kept clean and tidy for all to enjoy.”
