Bude Community Action Day Antics!


Residents of Berries Avenue in Bude came together in March to take part in a Community Action Day.

The event, organised by Community Link Officer Chris Sims, aimed to spruce up the Berries Avenue area of Bude by bringing together partner agencies and local residents for a day of action.

Cormac and Cornwall Housing Estate Wardens cleaned paths and communal areas, and the Cormac team used their Tool Trailer to help volunteers to plant trees and maintain shrubs. Residents also took part in a community litter pick.

All were welcome to the event, with plenty of refreshments provided. There was family friendly entertainment from Entertainingly Different throughout the day, with parachute games and circus skills. Argyle Community Trust also led multi skill and football activities for young people to enjoy.

Representatives from Bude Stratton Town Council, Cornwall Council’s Adult Social Care, Biffa Rubbish & Recycling teams, Volunteer Cornwall and Healthy Cornwall were in attendance to hold useful discussions. Cornwall Housing Management and Rent Officers were also on hand and talked to many residents.

Jo, Communication & Engagement Officer at Cornwall Housing, commented: “What a fantastic day and a brilliant effort put in from the locals and everyone involved.”
