Vaillant recently joined forces with Derby Homes and Derby City Council to clean up residential streets in Derby. The initiative aimed to enhance engagement with residents and improve the street scene with a long term plan of improving the standards of housing in the city.
Teams focused on clearing waste and bulky items, giving the streets a deep clean by weeding and washing, as well as painting window sills and damp proof frontages. Play activities were also provided throughout the two days for the local children, which included planting flowers in hanging baskets for their homes.
As well as the initial clean up, neighbourhood officers were present with Derby Homes’ community van in the area to help encourage staff and residents to gather and chat about the work taking place and inspire the residents on how they can maintain the new tidy street scene.
