Week of Action to support Operation CAN-do

A Week of Action began on Monday 9 November 2015 in the Operation CAN-do area of Peterborough, which encompasses Millfield and New England.

The week is part of the commitment from the council, Police and Safer Peterborough Partnership to continue to improve the area as a place to live, work and visit.

Activity planned over the course of the week ranges from street clean-ups to advice sessions for local residents. Topics of discussion will include housing advice, energy efficiency, travel options and fire safety.

Councillor Nigel North, cabinet member for communities at Peterborough City Council, said: "Aside from the important physical clean-up of the area, a vital part of the week will be talking to residents to understand in greater detail what's happening in the area and where they might need support.

"The team will also be providing people with advice and guidance to help them with a range of issues they may have. It will be a very positive experience and I would encourage everyone in the area to get involved."

The week brings together many key Peterborough agencies including the Police, Fire Service, housing teams, health improvement team, Citizens' Advice and Peterborough Council for Voluntary Services.

Activity throughout the week includes street cleaning, community litter picking, Energy Matters home visits arranged by Peterborough Environment City Trust, health advice and free sporting activities. 

Graeme Clark, tasking manager for the Safer Peterborough Partnership said: "This Week of Action will be a great opportunity for residents and local agencies to help shape services for this area in the future and give people useful information on a wide variety of topics."
