Jeff Smith helps with Clean-Up Campaign in Withington


Withington Civic Society organised a campaign action day in Withington Village on Saturday 14th May in partnership with Manchester City Council, Southway Housing, University of Manchester, Manchester Student Homes, Old Moat Primary School and other traders and groups from the Withington area. 

Over 50 volunteers were involved, including 20 students from the University of Manchester.

Jeff Smith said: “It was great to see so many local residents and students involved in the clean-up campaign on Saturday in Withington.  I was pleased to be involved too and collect some bags of rubbish. I’ve lived in Withington all my life and the area has a proud history and heritage.  It’s good to see so many people getting involved in community action like this in our area.”

Hey Jeff, I could be photographed sticking something into a plastic bag too! In fact I actually do that rather a lot around here, because I get no help from anyone else except the occasional sarcastic comment – familiar? But guess what? Politicians don’t actually clean the streets. Even the council doesn’t do all the job of cleaning the streets. Manchester politicians have a track record of whinging. Perhaps instead of just posing for photos you could actually attempt to achieve something, and not try to pretend that the streets are clean because someone elected you.
