Marie Lane, from Rake Gate Tenants and Residents’ Association in Grove, Wolverhampton, teamed up with Sue Roberts Wolverhampton’s Councillor. The pair managed to round thousands of pounds in funding to get 50 skips in just for a day to clean up the community.
Ms Lane, aged 56, said “Fly-tipping was really becoming a problem so I applied to the Police and Crime Commissioner’s office and we received £5,000. We also used all the money in the residents association account – we’re skint now. It’s so great to see it all clean though, and obviously I hope it stays that way,”.
