All About Us
The Tidy Team is all about creating a Cleaner and Greener Environment in partnership with local people to improve the overall environmental appearance of the four wards of Wombwell, Darfield, Milton, Hoyland and Rockingham that make up the South Area Council area.
Our policy is one of a 'Working With' the community to tackle the issues of littering, dog fouling, shrub bed maintenance, cutting back etc, to maintaining a clean, well presented and welcoming physical community environment.
Integrates with the United Nation and Local Government Social Development Goals (see poster below) and form the bedrock of our policy and working practice.
These goals break down to the Five P's of Sustainable Development (see poster opposite) which are under pinned by the three major components of our local development planning for:
- Economic growth
- Environmental stewardship
- Social inclusion
Our ethos helps form our community education programs and work with local schools and academies helping children and young people discover and care about the environment and increase their awareness. Several local schools have engaged with us to help improve and discover the local environment these include Birdwell Primary, Ellis, Elsecar, Greenfield, Hoyland Springwood, Jump, Kings Oak, Netherwood, St Michaels, and West Meadows to name just some.
