Love Your Street

What is Love Your Street?

Love Your Street was introduced following a pledge from the Elected Mayor Norma Redfearn to make sure North Tyneside’s streets remained spick and span.

The campaign encourages residents to take pride in their street, whether that is by not dropping litter, picking up after their pets or becoming part of a group who takes responsibility for the area.

Currently, there are a number of campaigns being run by North Tyneside Council to tackle litter and dog fouling and make sure North Tyneside continues to be an attractive place to live, work and visit.

These include North Tyneside in Bloom, Big Spring Clean, Operation Hotspot and the autumn campaign. Love Your Street is the overarching campaign to bring all together under a year-round initiative.

How can you get involved?

There are a number of ways residents can get involved with this new campaign, including litter picks and flower plantings.

The council will support residents in their efforts, supplying litter picks and bags for any street clean-ups and offering to collect any rubbish collected afterwards.

You can register your area to be a part of Love Your Street by completing the form attached to this webpage and selecting the Love Your Street category.

A resource pack to help residents coordinate and promote their events is available and can be found below.

North Tyneside in Bloom

Love Your Street’ is also a category in the North Tyneside in Bloom competition.

Red House Ramble, based in Whitley Bay, was the first winner of the award in 2017, with Killingworth Village and Sir James Knott Memorial Gardens in second and third, respectively.

Judges were impressed by the Friends of Red House Ramble’s dedication and the effort that had gone in to improving their local area, as well as the level of community involvement that was evidently on display.

Killingworth Village was commended for the community spirit they had shown, with a number of residents involved in various decorative efforts and events held throughout the year.

Sir James Knott Memorial Gardens had made an outstanding effort towards improving what was once a derelict site, and turning into a beautiful memorial garden.

Below is a gallery of pictures from the winners.
