The Big Soho Clean Up

On Bank Holiday Monday a group of over 100 young people gave up their Bank Holiday and started work at 6:30am in order to help clean up the streets and other parts of Soho.

Organised by Lanre Olagoke and badged as the Big Soho Clean Up, the young people worked with Veolia, Westminster’s street cleaning contractors at various locations. I was at St Anne’s Church where we worked together to tidy up the gardens, spring clean, sweep up and plant some new flowering plants for the summer.

 In spite of the inclement weather a huge amount was achieved and the contribution was acknowledged by the distribution of certificates of achievement in the evening at a ceremony at which Patti Boulaye sang.

 I would like to express my thanks and admiration not only to all the young people but also to Lanre and Veolia and others who supported the Big Soho Clean Up. It made a noticeable difference and I hope will become a regular event.
