Sevenoaks District Council was out this morning cleaning the High Street pavements using a brand-new piece of specialist equipment, which has had great result removing stains and gum – the pavement slabs now have a glimmer of newness to them.✨

The Town Council had been discussing with SDC about what could be done to help improve the general condition of the pavements along the High Street. Following a successful grant bid to The Chewing Gum Task Force scheme, SDC was awarded Β£20,000. SDC is one of the first authorities to be awarded the grant, which will be used to carry out deep cleans and remove chewing gum stains from a number of the District’s high streets. New signage to encourage residents to bin their gum will also be installed.

The scheme, that was set up by DEFRA and is run by Keep Britain Tidy, aims to help Councils clean up discarded gum in towns and villages. Edenbridge is delighted by the results this specialist equipment is having with the street cleansing.

Thank you to the SDC Street Cleaning team working in the town today and will be returning tomorrow to continue the clean.
