Appeal for help to clean up Keelby streets
THE FOUNDER of a village campaign is appealing to residents to help clean up the streets.
On Monday, a road sweeper will be passing through the leafy Lincolnshire village of Keelby to remove fallen leaves.
However, the machine from West Lindsey District Council will only be able to cover certain areas of the village. With this in mind, the organiser of the Brightening Keelby Campaign John Hodson wants residents to come forward armed with brushes to help clear the footpaths. The 64-year-old, of Rowan Close, Keelby, said: "I walk around the village and try to look to see what needs doing to improve it.
"I want to unite Keelby and get it cleaned up.

"The winter weather has made a lot of leaves fall which have stuck to the roads and pavements.
"This has made walking on them dangerous so I want to do something about it. If we can get some volunteers together to do a big clean-up it would really help.
"All people need to do is spend half an hour sweeping the leaves off the path outside their homes.
"There is a road sweeper coming on Monday so I think if we can all get it done on the same day it will make a big difference. Anyone is welcome to come and help and we will be meeting at The Manor in Manor Street at 9am on Monday."
