For more than ten businesses, Post Office Lane is the only place they can store their bins, and with four of those being restaurants, cafes and coffee shops, that’s a lot of rubbish and food waste. It’s no wonder then, that it has made its way onto Alex Chalk’s ‘grot spot’ list. You would sometimes be hard pressed to distinguish it from a local landfill site.
Well, not anymore! As part of our Tidy Up Cheltenham campaign, the BID has been focusing on this area for a long time. Working with Cheltenham Borough Council (CBC) and local businesses, our ambassadors arranged a litter pick and general clean up of Post Office Lane.
Deb, Carolyn and Phil, three of the BID Ambassadors, would like to say a massive thank you to Clive Evans, Community Protection Officer at CBC; Sophie Scarrott, owner of Keith Scarrott Shoes (and BID Board Director); Claire Harrison and Sarah Locke from Yates Wine Bar, who got down and dirty to help clear away rubbish, food waste and pallets.
