Hampden Park residents armed themselves with gloves and rubbish sacks to clean up the area this week. The event was organised by friends on the social media nostalgia group on Facebook, Hampden Park My Home Village and the volunteers cleared an alleyway off Brampton Road. They collected six large sacks of rubbish which was collected by contractors Kier in Faraday Close the following day.

The council supplied the equipment for the village clean up but traders say they are unhappy the authority is not keeping the area tidy.
