Addeys awarded SCHOOL OF THE YEAR @ACitizenshipT Honoured at a wonderful ceremony last night at the Houses of Parliament. Proud! Congratulations Mr Mason and Humanities. Thank you @vickyfoxcroft for your support. Thank you @emoorse01 for the incredible work you do. #loveaddeys
We clear 150 tonnes of fly-tipping each month - that's equivalent to 12 double decker buses! 🚍
Our cleansing teams do incredible work to remove fly-tipping and create a #CleanerLewisham, but we want to put an end to fly-tipping in the borough... 🧵
🚯 As part of our work to clamp down on fly-tipping, we’re taking action against those dumping rubbish illegally.
❌ We’ve already handed out over 800 fines for fly-tipping and littering this year – this money is reinvested in our work to tackle fly-tipping.
You can help create a #CleanerLewisham by:
👀 Reporting anybody you spot fly-tipping
🚚 Using our bulky waste collection service
📱 Reporting fly-tipping on the Love Clean Streets app
🛋️ Donating old household items to charity

🌳 We are committed to protecting our green spaces from inappropriate development that fails to benefit the local community.

People's Day returns on Saturday 16 July!

📉 Cuts to local authority budgets have put increasing pressure on adult social care - making life harder for service users and care workers.
🔊 @PaulBell1971 spoke to @SkyNews last week about the need for a properly-funded social care system.
Sky News meets care worker Viviane and service user Jean, who needs 24/7 care but only receives 16.5 hours a week.
Despite figures showing demand for adult social care rising, council budgets are shrinking.
