Volunteers from the Team Brecon community group have once again taken up spades, brushes and litter pickers to make Brecon a cleaner and greener town.
The group, which was formed last year, meet every Sunday to carry out various works around town.
This includes keeping the streets clean, picking up litter, cleaning bus shelters and caring for flower beds and planters in the town centre.
Team Brecon’s main aim is to make Brecon a cleaner and greener town for residents and visitors to enjoy while helping to create a positive impact on the town centre.
Since the group was established by Town and County Councillors from Brecon, it has worked with volunteers from the Police Cadets, local businesses, the Rotary Club, Brecon Volunteer Bureau and the community, who have all pitched in to help.
This year, the group has undertaken work to clean Brecon town centre, local bus shelters and a section of the Promenade.
Cllr Matthew Dorrance said:
“We all want Brecon to be a thriving and successful town and we know that cleanliness and our environment are really important to our residents and visitors.
“Team Brecon works across our different communities to bring people together to help achieve that.
“All of our work is organised in a COVID safe way and our volunteers are asked to work in household bubbles. We are keen to welcome new volunteers and our sessions are open to all.”
Cllr Liz Rijnenberg added:
“We set up Team Brecon to make our town an even better place to live and work and have exciting plans for the rest of 2021.
“Its inspiring and rewarding to be working with other volunteers to improve our town and see the progress we are making each week. Join us at 11 on Sunday or even do a bit nearer your home with family and friends if that works for you.
“I love the joint effort and chatting to passers-by, having a coffee together and seeing the town getting cleaner and greener – go on join us.”
