Our MAD Days are back for 2021!

Armed with a new list of locations to visit the team are looking forward to getting out and Making a Difference to local communities across the Borough during 2021.

What is a MAD Day?

MAD (Make a Difference) Days involve CBH staff, volunteers, residents and councillors visiting specific areas of the community to help make improvements and encourage pride in community spaces. On these days a whole host of clean-up activities take place ranging from general community clear up's, tree and hedge trimming, bulb planting and gardening, fence repair and painting and rubbish clearance.

No matter where you live, you can help out at any MAD Day throughout the year. We need all sorts of skills from painting, gardening and DIY through to good old fashioned hard work and determination. If you can spare a whole day to help that would be great (The average MAD day runs from 10am - 3pm) however if you can only spare an hour of your time we will be equally as grateful.
