Colchester Borough Homes’ successful ‘Make a Difference’ Day (MAD Day) community action event will be coming to New Town on Thursday, 30 June 2022.
Make a Difference Days bring together Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) staff, volunteers, residents, local organisations and community groups, who work in partnership to complete a series of activities. These activities aim to reinvigorate the designated target areas, providing benefits that radiate to the wider community across Colchester.
After listening to residents’ views on what improvements they would like to see in their neighbourhood, activities for the forthcoming MAD Day in New Town will include litter picking, painting fences, weeding the car parking area, and making minor improvements.
Colchester Borough Homes Chief Executive, Philip Sullivan, said: “Building on the success of previous Make a Difference days, the New Town event will initiate positive action and help develop pride in the local neighbourhood.
“If you live in the locality and have some spare time, then why not come along and join in. It’s an event that will really bring the community together.”
The team will be available on the day from 9am until 3pm. Anyone passing by, living or working in the area is welcome to come and speak to the team or get involved. If you can give some time to volunteer, please get in touch via
