Volunteers from over 40 businesses got their hands dirty to clear up the streets outside their doors in the third ‘#ItsMyStreet’ community event run by Ipswich Central this summer.

Ipswich Central say the campaign is not only about keeping the streets of Ipswich clean and tidy, but also to help make those working in the town proud of their place of work.

The campaign was first launched in June.

A spokesman for Ipswich Central, which is running the campaign, said: “Everybody working together can make a change, appreciating the place you work, live and visit is important, #itsmystreet brings the business community together to keep their area clean and gives that sense of pride.”
